Thanks for the link. Well written and informative commentary by Harvey A. Silverglate and James F. Tierney:
“BOSTON, MA — Seven years ago, the Supreme Judicial Court held that the state wiretapping statute prohibits citizens from secretly recording their conversations with police officers during traffic stops.
Since then, state and local law enforcement have threatened and sometimes carried out prosecutions under an even more expansive interpretation of that law in order to suppress attempts by citizens to document possible police misconduct.”
