So, while the government intrudes more and more into the lives of citizens, with stop light and CCTV cameras, citizens risk massive jail sentences if they dare record police officers in an effort to document the actions of police.

“A statute intended to prevent unwarranted intrusions into a citizen’s privacy cannot be used as a shield for public officials who cannot assert a comparable right of privacy in their public duties,” the judge wrote in his decision dismissing the five counts of eavesdropping charges against defendant Michael Allison.

“Such action impedes the free flow of information concerning public officials and violates the First Amendment right to gather such information,” he wrote….

In Thursday’s ruling, Circuit Court Judge David Frankland said that Allison had a First Amendment right to record the police officers and court employees.

The judge also ruled that while it was reasonable to prohibit the defendant from recording in the courtroom, making what Allison did a felony offense was overreaching and irrational.”

Union Violence Exposed

Filed under:General — posted by Jack on 11/3/2011 @ 5:08 pm

A Citizen’s Petition to: U.S. Senators and Representative

Whereas: Every year militant union bosses deploy their thugs to target innocent men and women with threats, brass knuckles, knives and beatings in an attempt to send a simple message — do what we want, or pay the price; and

Whereas: Because of the 1973 Enmons decision, union officials are exempt from federal prosecution — as long as the campaign of violence they incite is in the name of “legitimate union objectives”; and

Whereas: Union violence is a crippling blow not only for innocent American workers targeted by union militants — but for every American citizen; and

Whereas: Passage of the Freedom from Union Violence Act would close the loophole in federal law and finally allow authorities to prosecute union officials for inciting violence;

Therefore: I urge you to help hold union officials accountable for union violence by cosponsoring and seeking roll-call votes on the Freedom from Union Violence Act.
