Securing America: IL Eavesdropping Law [VIDEO]

A controversial Illinois eavesdropping law is still on the books, despite a recent court challenge.

FOX’s Mike Tobin reports from Chicago:

Record the cops in Illinois and you’re going to the big house.

The eavesdropping law makes it a felony to get an audio recording of police without their consent.

One circuit court just shot down the law, but while the appeal heads to the Supreme Court, it’s still on the books.

Some Illinois legislators are working to repeal the law before the NATO summit in late May. When protesters armed with video cameras will descend on Chicago, the videotaping and arrests could spin out of control.
