Q. Can I record police during a traffic stop in the state of Illinois?
A: Yes, Illinois allows citizens to record interactions with the police. The Illinois statute on point is 720 ILCS 5/14-2(e) which states: "Nothing in this Article shall prohibit any individual, not a law enforcement officer, from recording a law enforcement officer in the performance of his or her duties in a public place or in circumstances in which the officer has no reasonable expectation of privacy." As a caveat, the statute also states: "However, an officer may take reasonable action to maintain safety and control, secure crime scenes and accident sites, protect the integrity and confidentiality of investigations, and protect the public safety and order." Hope this helps!
Q. I am looking for a cival rights lawyer for federal court
A: Hello: I would be happy to learn more about your boyfriend's situation. When someone is detained at jail or sent to prison, they may lose their freedom, but they do not lose their civil rights. For example, prisons and corrections officers have a legal obligation to keep prisoners reasonably safe. When they fail to do so, they can be held liable. Inmates have a constitutional right not to be subjected to excessive force by law enforcement officers in the performance of their duties. Inmates may also bring a constitutional claim for inadequate medical care where prison officials exercise a "deliberate indifference" to serious medical needs. Examples of prisoner abuse include: physical abuse; sexual abuse; psychological and emotional abuse; deprivation of food and water; refusal to provide medical or psychiatric care; failure to protect inmates from others; failure to prevent suicide; unconstitutional conditions of confinement; racial discrimination; religious discrimination; and retaliation/punishment for expressing or reporting inadequate prison facilities or treatment. Hope this helps!
