From Mordor:

The Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from the Cook County state’s attorney to allow enforcement of a law prohibiting people from recording police officers on the job.

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.

    Guess they’re afraid that some of their “Only Ones” will be “Outed ” like Harliss of the Canton, Ohio P.D. was.

    And they Should be Afraid. Very Afraid.

    Perhaps if the article’s comments page was working for me, I wouldn’t need to ask this, but: what happens to the people already hit with stiff sentences because of this stupid law?

    This is gonna put a crimp in Chicago PD’s style. From shaking down tow-truck-drivers, to taking bribes for traffic tickets, to all manner of problems.

    My archives are filled with stories from Chicago under the heading Cops Behaving Badly

    Forcing Mordor back into the US …

    The SCOTUS settled the issue on videos of government officials some time ago … they legalized it.

    ankle: They can appeal immediately.

    Unbelievable that the state’s attorney’s office even thought that this was a reasonable appeal in the first place.
