DOJ: Press and Public have right to video tape police activity


From the ACLU::

In support of an important case brought by the ACLU of Maryland defending the right to record, the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division forcefully and unequivocally endorsed our view in an unusual (but welcome!) 11-page letter to the Baltimore Police Department.

When it comes to wiretapping private citizens law enforcement agencies consistently say: if you don’t have anything to hide you shouldn’t worry, which ignores the point that it’s unconstitutional.
