Pro-Life Activists Who Used Standard Media Technique of Undercover Sting Video to Expose Planned Parenthood Fetal Tissue Trade Indicted on 15 Counts

As Randy Barnett remarked (approximately), they told me if Trump were elected the machinery of the government would be turned against journalists, and they were right!

Sean Davis notes that such sting videos are routinely made in California, particularly by animal rights groups who surreptitiously record slaughterhouse workers, who are never prosecuted. Indeed, their sting videos spur the state to investigate crimes the targets of their sting videos might have committed.

David French's link (the first one) notes that California caselaw has limited the law against unconsented recording of a conversation to situations in which the target could have a reasonable expectation of privacy, and has specifically ruled it did not apply in situations like the one we find here (strangers meeting in a public place with no expectation the other party will keep their conversations private, discussing business in a manner they'd discuss business with with any other potential business partner).

But if you're pro-life? Well then. Now the state is coming after you with everything it has.

This cannot go on much longer. When you are this blatant about telling people that they will not have the protections of the law, that some favored groups are permitted to break what is supposedly "the law" while "the law" will be used vindictively against the state's enemies, then there is no "law" at all, and people will very soon stop acting as if there is.

When the state declares large swathes of people to be Enemies of the State, they also simultaneously make the state the Enemy of the People.

What cannot go on, will not.

Corrected: It wasn't Ilya Somin who'd used Instapundit's "and they were right" line, but Randy Barnett.
