Recording Police Officers
A judge on Friday tossed out the controversial Illinois eavesdropping law, which makes it a crime to record police officers, according to a published report.
When police misconduct is caught on tape, it’s a big deal, and there could much more taping going on in Illinois.
It is illegal to record a conversation with a police officer if you get pulled over or have a run-in, but police Supt. Garry McCarthy says that should change.
