    However I do recommend reading the statutes yourself and possibly getting the advice of competent counsel.
    I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.

    I used to be a reserve police officer in Rapid City years ago. At the time SDCL on taping someone (video or audio) was that it is fine as long as one party is aware of the recording. In this case as long as you are aware that you are recording then you are fine. You can search South Dakota Codified Laws online and find your answers.
