    Just another disgusting denial of constitutional rights.

    To consider taping the fucking pigs to be on par with rape and murder is beyond moronic but hey, what more could we expect from our benevolent government?

    The title of this thread is right on.

    The law this man is accused of violating was enacted specifically to prevent wiretapping. This expedient application is obviously being adapted for the purpose of concealing improper or unlawful police conduct. Unfortunately, because of the increasingly authoritarian nature of our government there is little hope the Congress will intervene by revising the eavesdropping law to limit its application to its intended purpose.

    Public officials who function in the public domain should have no expectation of privacy. But the Supreme Court that appointed President George W. Bush and enabled "Citizens United" is not likely to act on the People's behalf. So I'm afraid Big Brother will prevail in this latest outrage.

    That's wrong. That's just plain wrong. What's the difference between a dude with a video camera and a "witness" starting sentences under oath with phrases like "Then he (the cop) said....." and "About that time I saw..." besides the accuracy of the testimony? :dunno:
