A court of appeals found that the arrest was a violation of the persons 1st and 4th Amendment Rights.

Good news.

if i have an interaction with police the phone comes out the record gets pushed. the cleo is welcome to a copy if they want it. if the cop arrests me for recording that agency can expect a civil rights suite with lots and lots of zeros in the number of dollars.

if the police can record me without violating "wire tap" laws with their dash cams and red light cameras and tollway cameras and access store security cameras and atm cameras without a warrant i can record them. works both ways

I agree. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.

This is an Illinois issue. The people there support these kind of things.
I have lived in liberal states before & that's just the way it is. You & I cannot change this. States do have the power to make there own laws. The constitution and bill of rights mean nothing in many states already. Goggle," Illinois supreme court", scary stuff.

In Ohio, at least, the way law reads and is understood: as long as one or more persons being recorded know they are being recorded, there is no violation of the law.

-So, here, if you record your interactions between LEO and yourself, you're safe (you know about the recording).

-If LEO records his/her interactions between a subject and themselves, they are safe (they know about the recording).

-If a supervisor records an interview between a detective and a suspect/victim, and neither know about it, no good.

Default stupid laws by stupid people

This just screams 'IM TRYING TO COVER UP SOMTHING!'......Dont do anything stupid/embarassing you need to sweat being filmd in the first place. A crooked law to cover crooked people's hind ends.
