    Gotta find the bill to read the language.

    I hope there is no "notification" language. If there is, when you notify a LEO that you are taping them, you can pretty much gather where that is going to go!

    I have never seen a person drink tea from a coke bottle while standing on their head, that doesn't mean it is illegal.

    In my experience in Old Saybrook? Nowhere. They didn't even care that they were being taped during an obviously illegal detainment, even when they found out that the crime they were basing their RAS on didn't exist.

    YMMV but I think this bill is pretty useless. We don't need laws to make things more illegal.

    So let me see if I got this right. Our legislature took the time, paper and pen as well as the time to introduce a bill on something that is already legal. What next a bill saying that it is good to drive through a green light? How about the LEOs just learn the ACTUAL law instead of the law as they want to see it. Such a wage of the State finances.

    Back in the real world, this bill seems like it could do some good.

    Since every day innocent victims are arrested for the crime of... photography?

    Thank you!

    And anyway, this doesn't legalize behavior which was already legal by default.

    What it does, is make it civilly actionable for cops to ignore the limits of their legal authority, which they do by illegally arresting folks who videotape or record them. This just means it's that much easier to sue them when they screw up, which is basically 100% awesome.

    Seeing as this happens all the time, and has happened in Connecticut, I think it's a fantastic idea.

    Yeah...we should toss the Bill of Rights too because it uselessly enshrines our natural rights....right?

    Thanks for posting the link to Miller's site. The sad fact is that the firearms culture is not the only one fighting false arrests on a daily basis.
