Chicago Police Supt.: It's good to record officers
Garry McCarthy says there are ''no arguments when you can look at a videotape''
By Abdon M. Pallasch and Adeshina Emmanuel
CHICAGO — Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said last week the Illinois law against recording conversations between police and civilians is just as bad for the police as it is for citizens.
McCarthy''s comments may help State Rep. Elaine Nekritz (D-Northbrook) pass a bill out of her committee Tuesday reversing that law.
