But I think it could be said that injury was clearly their intent. They darn sure did not call and RECORD it because they hoped to show everyone what a great guy Gov. Walker was.
And about the “one party awareness in Wisconsin and New York - it would seem only to protect/serve the person who is doing the recording. I understand there are cases where someone NEEDS to have evidence of threatening or abusive language, when recording without permission would serve this end, but IMHO this does not fall under that classification. If anything, this could be seen as entrapment.
May God give us strength.
LOL. You have no idea what "entrapment" means, do you?
Entrapment applies when a person is persuaded by a law enforcement officer to commit a crime that they never had any intention of committing before the law enforcement officer got involved in the situation. For example . . . an off-duty or undercover cop who goes out and challenges another motorist to a drag race cannot have that motorist arrested for reckless endangerment or some similar charge.
In order for entrapment to occur in the Gov. Walker "phone call" incident, two conditions would have been needed: (1) the person making the phone call would have needed to be a law enforcement officer, and (2) Gov. Walker would have needed to commit a crime. Nothing remotely resembling either condition was involved here.
The only person who might legitimately claim that they were somehow harmed in this case is Gov. Kohl of Wisconsin, and this would only be true if the caller had done something to defraud or harm HIM. And I'm no lawyer, but in this case that would seem to be a civil matter, not a criminal matter.
