When cameras are outlawed ...

Posted By on Mon, Dec 20, 2010 at 12:29 PM

I had no idea.

I knew about the guy in Benton County (above) who made an unflattering video of an arresting officer with a camera hidden in his sunglasses.

I knew about the Little Rock cop, caught off-duty using a racial slur (below), and since reinstated to his job by the Civil Service Commission over the objections of the police chief.

What I didn't know — and what should be disturbing for all — is that three states have moved to make it illegal to record on-duty police officers.
