(NaturalNews) Abuse of power is becoming accepted at even local levels now, as absurd targeting of ordinary non-violent Americans becomes “normal.”
Michael Allison, a 42-year-old man from Robinson, a small town in Illinois, faces a 75-year prison sentence for videotaping police.
The charge waged against Michael Allison is based on an archaic Illinois eavesdropping law which slaps a 15-year prison sentence for each “eavesdropping” offense. Michael is accused of five offenses, including his videotaping of police as they walked onto his mother’s property, seizing unregistered vehicles that he was working on. Allison was also fined for his vehicles that were deemed a “public nuisance.”
