He clearly deserves to go to jail, look how guilty he looks.

Uh, no, this is related to a 75 year old eavesdropping law... that an elected official tried to have reformed but was shut out by the rest of the legislature.

Those that would give up a little freedom to gain a little security should deserve neither and lose both.

so its ok to record a citizen to use against them at a traffic stop... but not ok for the officer to be recorded to use against them if they abuse their power!!?

gtfoh.

yup thats basically what they are saying...
the thing about filming police is it also helps to keep them safe if they aren't abusing their power, because it can be used as proof that they were acting correctly

the video makes it sound like only the AUDIO part is illegal, but it's still total bullshit. sometimes what's said is more important than what is seen.

Ex; If a police officer fails to recite your rights properly, you can get off scot-free.

But apparently submitting proof that an officer failed to read you your rights gets you 75 years in prison.

Bono they only have to read you your rights if they want to interrogate you (or question you.) They can still arrest you without them though.

As usual the media reports stuff like bullshit drama. This story is important but to say and believe he actually could be sentenced to 75 years is retarded. "75 years" becomes a pointless catchphrase that would fit on a protest sign. It's like the guy editing that video where it looks like he's singing a dirty song in front of children is now facing 20 YEARS IN PRISON. "OMG, murderers and rapists don't do that much time." It sounds like something that idiot Michael Moore would say and believe.

actually, 75 years is the MAX he could face, the media as well as the court systems always use that as a scare tactic...usually it is MUCH less

That was exactly my point.

And you are both right. 75 years is what *could happen* in theory. I wouldn't be surprised if this guy won't have to go to jail at all in the end. But then again the media will not be interested in this case anymore, for there's other stuff to make dumb people hate other dumb people just in time.

This is a fucking joke. Seriously. I'm so glad I don't live in the US.
