You can be arrested for videotaping the police

Apparently in an attempt to prevent citizens from protecting themselves against police abuse, some states are intentionally misinterpreting wiretapping laws intended to protect citizens from police abuse as justification for convicting them with a felony. Ironic, sad, and troubling.

What I wonder is how the police can justify using their cruiser-cams as evidence when, according to their logic, they're committing a felony. Anyway, I thought this story my be of interest.
