"He was making an audio recording of the officer during a motor vehicle stop without getting consent of the officer," Begin said.
The balls on these cops.
cops have an expectation of privacy on the side of a HIGHWAY...?
Can we have sex on the side of the highway? If not, why?
Do we not also have an expectation of privacy?
Citizens or subjects?
You know, at some point this stupidity will begin to cost cities, counties and police dept’s so much money maybe they’ll get the idea and stop it...
None of these cases ever end well for the police, so why do they continue to do it?
Are they truly that dumb?
More like the nerve of the prosecutor — if he regularly declined to prosecute such cases then occifers would not dare to suggest it.
Apart from the fine points of legality, there is the obvious point of felony-flation. Keep in mind that the idea of felony evolved in law as the class of crime so evil that it would be worthy of punishment by hanging or other loss of life. Anyone can see that applying such a punishment to an offense (?) such as this fails the laugh test.
THAT's the real reason the cops are on this jihad...
Do the cops there have in car cameras with audio?
Heck, you should visit NC. Our State Highway Patrol officers have sex on the side of the highway all the time, or on some back-roads where they administer “breathalyzer” tests to unsuspecting, but agreeable, female lawbreakers.
Jury Nullification Advocate Is Indicted
From reading the above it appears that they do. Therefore, if they don’t get the consent of the motorist, the cops should be arrested and prosecuted for every recording they make.
Doesn’t there have to be a wire in order to indict somebody for wiretapping? Probably a stupid question, I know.
LOL, you’re all missing a bit of context. NH is generally a rural small town affair As such not too much goes on in the way of crime, big cities excepted. Couple that (ie boredom) with raging hormones, super sized egos, badges and guns and the result is documented in the article. I’ve yet to meet a local who didn’t have his head firmly ensconced up his rear-end. We’re talking mall cop fodder here. The state animal cops rank about the same, perhaps slightly higher on the mall-cop scale.
It is the result of a corrupt legal system. Our “man-made” laws not based on Natural Law Theory and God’s Law are unjust and unconstitutional. (Holmes was the one to divorce logic and reason from the laws that is the result of removing it from Natural Law Theory which is where common sense originates.
Lawyers have divorced the laws from Natural Law Theory, something all the Founders agreed would result in political laws—laws that gave some groups power over others and would create inequality under the law. We have unjust laws, which is obvious in thousands of cases. We have created “protected” status for some—which screams unconstitutional. We have to clean up the legal system, before any of the egregious things can be remedied.
Unjust laws cannot prevail without creating chaos and revolutions. But that is what the Marxist legal scholars in the elite universities want and the types appointed by Clinton and Zero want....to create a totalitarian state where they are god and tell us what to use when we wipe our b*tts.

Hey, jack booted thugs.
YOU WORK FOR US.
Oh, and by the way, you’re fired!
