Audiotaping of Police & Public Officials in Illinois

Illinois has a very strict anti-eavesdropping law that, believe it or not, prohibits citizens from audiotaping police and other public officials while they are on the job. It is a crime to do so…. or at least it was until very recently.

I think it is a good thing. It protects the police and/or public official and it protects the public as well.  Chicago police Superintendent Garry McCarthy seems to agree.

Why not equip all police with a real time video camera that records audio as well…. and beam everything back to headquarters as it is happening?
