Woman who recorded Massachusetts police beating charged with illegal wiretapping – Boing Boing

 

In one of those retarded reversals of the law a Springfield Mass. police officer who was videotapped beating a detained suspect by another citizen is now suing that videographer for illegal wiretapping.

 

The victim/Suspect after the beating

FFS. Really? The police in various states have come down on the wrong side of the law on this one in a number of instances, but they persist in trying the chill the ability of normal citizens from holding them to account.

I hope the judge takes one look at the situation and throws it out of his courtroom.
