Out of the Blue

We laid my dad to rest yesterday, it was a quiet funeral, and he is how buried with a lot of our ancestors in Green-Wood Cemetery, right in the heart of his beloved Brooklyn. The gathering of family also gave my brother and me the chance to reconnect with an uncle, aunt, and, cousins who we haven't seen in years, and we've resolved to better stay in touch, which is an uplifting side-effect of the somber occasion.

This all resulted in a lack of updates after the morning, and this is likely what will happen today as well, but I expect to be fully back on track as of tomorrow.

Now, should videotaping be illegal? I guess I really don't care. I am on video everytime I step out of my car. Doesn't bother me one bit. I conduct myself the same way, on tape or not. I will leave it up to the individual states to decide.

Isn't the law supposed to be that it's illegal to record if the person being taped doesn't believe they are being taped?

If every officer is under the impression that they are already being taped, then the law wouldn't apply, right? I'm sure it depends on the state, of course, but I believe they're all mostly the same.
