This incident takes place in a gay bar named Blakes, in Atlanta Georgia. It seems that an intoxicated patron threw a drink in an off duty police officers face. But the crux of the story for DCMR is the last paragraph in the news post that I have provided in the link below. These are a few words in that paragraph ( It is not illegal for citizens to film police actions) the point I want to make is that it’s legal to record police. And this Bull Crap about the police using the wire tap law is a joke also, I have again posted the United States Court of Appeals ruling about that in a link below . The most powerful tool to fight corruption with is knowledge. An informed society is what we need to keep our public servants in line. Record Police Breaking the Law its your right.
