Two Laws That Make Me Livid 

First of all, in Chicago, it's illegal to film the police. Like, felony illegal. "Even if a cop is caught clobbering a protester on the streets of Chicago, recording the incident can land both amateur photographers and seasoned journalists alike behind bars, where they could face sentencing on par with charges of rape and murder."

Second of all, a "Trespassing" bill makes the peoples lawful right to peaceably assemble completely illegal if the Secret Service is in the area, or if it's just "an event of national significance", like a political convention, or the Super Bowl.

Why do people have to protect themselves from the Government so much? You know that when there's a playground bully, the best way to get him to leave you alone is to punch him back. We should punch them back.

Your parents are probably very proud of you, young man. Welcome to the battle.

I share your outrage over the examples cited Aegon1, but I don't know how to stop the creeping juggernaut of totalitarianism.

The dems embrace it and the repubs have no stomach for stopping it.

I am sorry to say that in many American towns, and not just big cities, the police simply cannot be trusted. I know from personal experience that Princeton is, in fact, such a town. Laws like this are not only manifestly against the spirit and proper interpretation of the Constitution, but they reinforce the worst tendencies of our constabulary.

Anon Attorney's older brother lived in Chicago circa 1985-91, about the same time your father lived there. In fact, I would not be surprised if their paths crossed at Iowa Hawkeye events in the Lincoln Park area.

Chicago cops are notorious. Of his many stories, my favorite is the night one of his buddies was involved in a car crash with an intoxicated, off-duty Chicago cop who ran a red light and T-boned my brother's buddy. The cops showed up, took the officer and his car away, gave my brother's buddy an accident report for a hit and run, and told him that if he knew what was good for him he would never mention it again.

From this cesspool emerges Obama. Anyone surprised?
