In Illinois it is a felony to audio record police actions.
This means: if a citizen has recorded his own arrest on a cell phone the citizen can be charged with a felony. A conviction carries a four to 15 year prison term.
This is exactly what has happened to Christopher Drew, an artist who was selling his art for $1 on a sidewalk in Chicago.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, Feb. 14, at the Circuit Court of Cook County, 2600 S. California (26th and California) Oral arguments over the constitutionality of the eavesdropping law will be heard.
Help defend our freedoms! Show the court by attending that you will not let this outrageous infringement on the rights of citizens to pass unnoticed and unchallenged. Your presence in the court room can make a difference.
