Fifteen Years In Prison For Videotaping Police

Or as it's known in Illinois state governor's retirement system. Anyway, Illinois's police state doesn't want its officers recorded.
Leave it to the Illinois General Assembly to do the wrong thing again. This week they voted down House Bill 3944, a bill to amend the state's brutally antiquated Eavesdropping Act. The Illinois Eavesdropping Act makes it a Class 1 Felony that carries a penalty of up to 15 years in prison if you record police officers on duty (as well as some other state officials, such as judges, state's attorneys, etc.).
