How exciting! I'm going to buy an awesome 1080p camcorder and hit the streets! Its time to start making documentaries and pointing fingers. As far as them following this ruling, start printing out the PDF files of the court case and article, and if anyone has a problem just give them a copy. It would be a good idea to start sending this ruling to local police stations to.

Are you seriously saying that you have held back your 1st amendment rights because you were too afraid of the cops arresting you? Well let's hope you have some documentary worth ideas at least then

Now all we need is for the cops to stop
enforcing the law.
Just because the Supreme Court has a "finding" the cops can still arrest you.

Have fun spending 3-4 days in Cook County waiting for bail "to process".

And while you may have charges dropped eventually, they have your bail, your time, and your prints.

Courts are just as much a joke as Law Enforcement now-a-days.

This is good. I know of one town where the police are turning off their dash cams while on duty so they don't have to worry about their actions being recorded.

The has issued an informational video and a press release, to help the media and the general public in the upcoming oral argument at the Illinois Supreme Court hearing in Annabel Melongo’s eavesdropping case. The hearing is scheduled for January 14th, 2014, at the 18th floor of the Michael A. Bilandic Building, 160 N. LaSalle Street, Chicago at 9.30 am.

Press Release:

Please support this cause. The Illinois Eavesdropping law at its very core creates a two-class legal system wherein the conversations of the powerful and well-connected are protected to the detriment of the less powerful. The upcoming oral argument presents a unique opportunity for the common citizen to re-establish that legal balance that will unequivocally establish a right to record public officials in their public duties.

Therefore, please contribute to this all-important hearing by either attending it, writing about it, spreading the word or just forwarding the below video and press release to anybody who might be of any help.
