Absolutely ridiculous

http://www.cato.org/pub_display.php?pub_id=11861

A Maryland resident's home was searched, computers and a camera were seized, and he was taken to jail for 26 hrs after he posted a video of a traffic stop he was involved in. All of this was done because of an anti wire tapping statute on Maryland's books that needs to be revised.

Police officers work for the people and we have every right to monitor their conduct while they are on duty. Prosecuting a citizen for posting a video of a traffic stop is the behavior of a dictatorship, not a democracy.
