Dept Of Unnecessary Ledes

Yesterday Radley Balko tweeted this article on another case involving citizens' facing consequences for recording the police. You have to love what they thought was important enough to put right at the top of the piece:

A former stripper, who secretly recorded two Chicago Police Internal Affairs investigators while filing a sexual harassment complaint against another officer was acquitted on eavesdropping charges Wednesday.

I mean, do you REALLY want to live in a country where former strippers concerned about being coerced out of filing harassment claims have the right to record cops just doing their jobs?
