He should have been fired. If nothing else.
It's sad that your sarcasm rings so true.
It's sad that when a person doesn't have a reasonable expectation to privacy that this now means everyone on the god damn planet can be privy to the conversation.
It's sad that I can't even put out a call for a rewrite in these privacy laws because I know doing so will only screw things up even more and give the government better control over not only what every one else sees and hears but what it itself is allowed to see and hear. Not that the law is followed much in that regard anymore anyways...
