Supreme Court Rejects Police State Appeal
You know, once in a great while, when you least expect it. The ACLU at last does something good.
The Supreme Court has rejected an Illinois prosecutor's plea to allow enforcement of a law aimed at stopping people from recording police officers on the job.I'm sure that the most corrupt police force in the country there Chitown isn't too happy about this.
The justices on Monday left in place a lower court ruling that found that the state's anti-eavesdropping law violates free speech rights when used against people who tape law enforcement officers. The law sets out a maximum prison term of 15 years.
