The unbelievable case of Michael Allison, an Illinois mechanic facing multiple felony counts for recording on-duty police is analyzed by attorney Thomas H. Sayre, Lynchburg Times political writer Emily Williams and newspaper publisher Dan McDermott.

It is another disturbing example of police using wiretap laws to stop citizens from using camera phones to record their behavior.
