Such wacky laws exist everywhere Zero. Additionally, there are laws
everywhere against you recording by voice and/or video anyone without
consent, but its quite alright for police officers to do so in public,
and if the right federal agency is involved, they can get any sort of
warrant signed, blanked out, by one particular federal judge that seems
to use his bench as a one man center of opression, to surveille you or
raid your property on the basis of unfounded allegations and/or
anonymous informants.

You seem to not care that government abuses its power so much, so long
as it isn't you they are abusing.
