Apparently in Pennsylvania, recording anybody’s voice, under any circumstances, by any means, constitutes wiretapping, and is a felony. I’m not sure how I feel about that when it’s one private citizen recording another, but I know I don’t like it when it’s a case of a private citizen recording an officer of the law. I feel that, as civil servants, the words and deeds of police officers ought to be open to recording for later scrutiny. I’ve just seen one too many cases of police abusing their power, and this really smacks of “we’ve got something to hide”. If the cops aren’t doing anything wrong, they should welcome recordings of themselves performing their duties. This really sounds like a case of extortion, in which the prosecution expects (and likely wants) the defendant to plea bargain to lesser charges.
