Woman charged with wiretapping for filming cops wins $57,000 payout


 As long as you don't interfere with them doing their job it should be legal. Videotaping would
help keep everyone in line.




A local New Hampshire police department agreed Thursday to pay a woman who was arrested and charged with wiretapping $57,000 to settle her civil rights lawsuit. The deal comes a week after a federal appeals court ruled that the public has a "First Amendment" right to film cops.
The plaintiff in the case, Carla Gericke, was arrested on wiretapping allegations in 2010 for filming her friend being pulled over by the Weare Police Department during a late-night traffic stop. Although Gericke was never brought to trial, she sued, alleging that her arrest constituted retaliatory prosecution in breach of her constitutional rights. The department, without admitting wrongdoing, settled Thursday in a move that the woman's attorney speculated would deter future police "retaliation."

Beautiful June day out there....

A little more comfortable out there today...and certainly cooler as the next system (already) starts to arrive.
Partial sunshine to start the day across most of New Hampshire, with clouds increasing through the day. Temps will run a bit below normal (68-74) coolest at the coast with an onshore breeze.

For now this is my view....






That might change a little later.....

On a tip from Jeffery and yes, he most likely didn't say that, but it's funny anyway.

From The Road....

I just spent over 3 hours on a round trip business run. It's amazing the amount of traffic that is on the highways at all hours.  I left after lunch and just returned a little while ago.  I saw 3 accidents and countless brake lights. Mind you this is mid afternoon on a Tuesday... where the F*&K is everyone going?

This is the volume of traffic, no accident, no rain, just cars....

From The Open Road....

Massabesic Lake is a lake in southern New Hampshire, United States, covering about 2,561 acres (1,036 ha)[1] (equivalent to about 4 sq mi or 10 km2) within the city of Manchester and the town of Auburn. Because it provides drinking water for Manchester, swimming and water skiing are not allowed there.[2] Popular sports on the lake are sailing, fishing, kayaking and mountain biking. The recreational trails along the lake provide beautiful views of the lake and the town of Auburn.
Besides flowing into the Manchester water system, the lake's water feeds Cohas Brook, leading to the Merrimack River. Massabesic is an Indian name, meaning "place of much water" or "near the great brook."
Native American legends claim that the famous New Hampshire chief Passaconaway died on Lake Massabesic. A settler reported that the elder chief was headed towards Loon Island on the east side of the lake, which was "a place of fond memories of the aged chief's young past". When he was in the north part of the lake, a thunderstorm was being formed, which "was a sign of the presence of the Great Spirit". Then, a lightning bolt hit the canoe in which Passaconaway was riding in, and he and the canoe were disintegrated instantly.


That view of the lake is taken from the point I marked with the red arrow on the map below.  There is some nice riding on those back roads.
