Mainstream media bring attention to wiretapping law abuse

From Carlos Miller’s Photography is Not a Crime blog:

ABC News is the latest national mainstream media news organization to address the growing epidemic of cops using wiretapping charges to arrest people videotaping them.

And as in the previous cases, Photography is Not a Crime gets a link, a mention and I even get a quote in.

In the last few weeks, USA Today, The Washington Post (article and editorial) and NPR’s Talk of the Nation have addressed the issue.

Also on a more local level, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported last week that the Allegheny County district attorney’s office settled a federal lawsuit by agreeing to redistribe a memo to police departments explaining that it is not against the law to videotape a cops on duty.

Update: The Union Leader, a New Hampshire-based newspaper, published this piece several days ago.
