Law Enforcement Overreach Alert

Do you like your right to vote? How about free speech? Or the right to a fair trial? With freedom comes the uncomfortable boundaries sometimes. Like the right of Neo-Nazis to espouse their despicable views.

We have many rights including recording events that occur in public. So why did the sheriff deputy in a small Minnesota town not get the memo?

From the¬†Pioneer Press,”Little Canada man videotaped sheriff’s deputies, and got charged for it”¬†
“Henderson, 28, took out his small handheld video camera and began recording. It’s something he does regularly with law enforcement.

But what happened next was different. The deputy, Jacqueline Muellner, approached him and snatched the camera from his hand, Henderson said.”
