A woman records cops who are arresting her son. The cops claim that the act of recording them in a public place while they are carrying out the public’s business and collecting a public paycheck is somehow obstructing their investigation.
An appeals court in Palm Beach County Florida agreed. According to the court, recording the cops should be illegal.
Frankly, that bothers me.

The SCOTUS has already ruled that public employees conducting their jobs in public are recordable, some dickwad Florida state or local court’s opinion not withstanding. A lot of the Federal Circuit courts have paved the way.
But it has to be done in a way that reasonably does NOT interfere with the officers doing their jobs. Otherwise, you can imagine the results. Officers will always claim that what is happening is interfering, which is obviously not true. They’d best get on board without making outrageous claims of “interference” because their credibility is already in tatters.
