Photography is not a crime.

Near the top of my wish this for next month’s General Assembly session is a law explicitly authorizing citizens to videotape, photograph, and record audio of police officers in the line of duty. In the current issue of Reason, Radley Balko makes a powerful case for why this is important.

In theory, this is the sort of thing that Republicans should be all about. Sadly, I’ve got a tough time thinking of anybody in the General Assembly who would patron this.
