2. Looks like they worked out all the kinks and this will be a model for Occupy and others.

We should congratulate Democratic Senator Eric Coleman who held firm to the passage of this despite resistance.

9. and then they will arrest them for something else

I read just last week about a state where they keep telling the cops not to arrest for videoing. So now they arrest them for loitering.

14. Wonderful! But how sad that a bill like this is necessary. After YEARS

of being told we have no expectation of privacy when we are out in public.. How DARE our public servants claim that they should be able to operate under a cloak of invisibility??!?
