Document H:

https://www.illinoispolicy.org/illinois-general-assembly-revives-recording-ban/

By: Illinois general assembly

Date: December 5,2014

H: After multiple accounts of civilians catching police on film for police brutally and other illegal things Illinois has made it illegal to film a police officer

P: Illinois thinks it is unfair to the officers if they are constantly watched and crowded by multiple cameras while attempting to do their jobs .

Reflection: I believe that it is wrong for Illinois to do this because it seems as if the state is enforcing the police brutality now that it is hard for the officers to get caught on camera with multiple reports of it I feel there should be even more cameras instead of less to watch the police officers.
