That would be the Republican party

This kind of law has nothing to do with Republicans or Democrats - just right and wrong. And its wrong, citizens should be able to report on any action of a policeman or any government official..

15 years in prison for defending yourself from a corrupt police department that already has the deck stacked against you. What has America come to ? They have guns and the criminal justice dept on their side and they make it a CRIME to employ an electronic whitness on your behalf.

Cops can have a camera in the squad cars recording what is transpiring... But a tax paying citizen can not record an incident?.. Really?!?!

"eavesdropping" is a felony worth up to 15 years in prison? Ridiculous!

It seems like this was purely retaliatory. Does she have a civil case?

Illinois seriously needs to get rid of it's stupid two party consent law. It's always the cops trying to use it to charge people who record them doing something illegal. I'm not sure how a bank robber hasn't contested it, suggesting that he didn't give consent to video tape him during the robbery and gotten it rewritten yet.

if one good thing ever comes from cell phone cameras and social media, it will finally enlighten those who still think that the police are incorruptible.

Police incorruptible?
Many of them can only be told apart from the common or garden variety criminal by their badge. I'd never ever in a year of Sundays trust a cop more than any other stranger I meet. Possibly even less because cops are armed and they prima facie have the whole might of the law behind them.

I don't care if she was in the right or not. My question is if they arrested her for es dropping on a conversation that the police were having then why don't they arrest the media and Cops the reality show on Fox and a few other channels it's on TV and arrest the producing crew that does Lock up and Jail for filming conversations and es dropping on officer's conversations? They are not above the law as this woman is.

Illinois is the only state that has this silly two party consent law. Somehow it doesn't apply to cops taping criminals from dash cams, convenience stores taping people robbing them, etc. It's a sad legacy from a state that has half it's last 6 governor's in prison.

But it does. If a Cop is recording you, and you haven't committed a crime, tell them to stop. If they don't they are subject to serious criminal charges.

Because journalist are covered under some law or another. Their job allows them to do these types of things legally.

NOT TRUE. Journalist can only use your voice if you give them permission. If you don't tell them "no", then that legally means "yes".
