    I agree. That is very good news. If the people who work for the public are afraid of the public checking on their work its a problem - for me anyway.

    Good news for all.

    One of the things in this case that really bugs me is the government spent money on attorneys to protect the state against the people. Kind of sounds like something going on in Egypt not Illinois.

    So long as people realize that just because you have a piece of video showing the police doing something you believe to be wrong doesn't mean they actually ARE/WERE doing something wrong, or that everyone who views the video is going to agree that it's wrong.

    We currently have a piece of video floating around New England showing Rhode Island Police forcing teens to do pushups after being caught vandalizing someone's property. Some people around here are in an absolute outrage over it. Most of us really don't see what the problem is.

    That's fine, as long as we also remember that police are human and not pure and right all the time. Police and their sycophants like to say "If you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear" all the time when discussing suspects. Guess what, that's a two-way street. If the police themselves have nothing to hide then they have nothing to fear, and should not object to being recorded/filmed.

    True. However, when there's a question of who is in the Right and who is in the Wrong, I'm going to side with the LEO 99% of the time until it can be definitively proven they were in the wrong.

    here in this place called america we have these things called courts. in courts people present both sides, not just one. Yes, that often means that at some time or another a completely stupid point will be defended. Still, this defense is guaranteed for all of us so that the government cannot say you personally cannot defend yourself because someone does not feel your case has merrit. Where i do agree the law was absurd and needed to be challenged, it also needs to be defended.

    So feel glad that notion is there because it protects you. Seriously, sometimes people really amaze me when they want to toss out their own rights and allow government officials to simply decide they are not worth defending in court. if that is the land you really want i am sure there are some places in this world that would allow the government to decide, without trial, your fate.

    How do you feel about recording/filming police in their work?
