What are your thoughts on the new Illinois law making it a felony to video an arrest?


This law went into effect ahead of Chicago's G8 summit - where there tends to be a lot of protests. It also, in my opinion, is a threat to our constitution and freedom. Why should it be a felony to video record evidence of police brutality? or an arrest in general? - I mean if the police are just doing their jobs - why should it matter if someone records them. If the police are engaged in brutality or false arrest etc. doesn't having the ability to video them benefit the citizens? I am very alarmed and appalled by this and Obama's recent signing of the NDAA - this path is scary.
