Do Citizens Have a Right to "Wiretap" the Government

A 2006 graduate of New England School of Law will stand trial on Jan. 29 in Boston Municipal Court on charges of wiretapping, aiding an escape and disturbing the peace for allegedly using his cell phone to record the arrest of a 16-year-old juvenile in a drug case.

As I saw this I couldn't help thinking of words recently written by Judge Andrew Napolitano in A Nation of Sheep:

"Why should government agents spy on us? They work for us. How about we spy on them. On cops when they arrest and interrogate people or contemplate suspending freedom, on prosecutors when they decide whom to prosecute and what evidence to use... These are all our employees and we have a right to know what they are doing."
