    Bamboo Garden closed? `

    Have they changed their concept since it first opened? I read the article about home brewers taking turns and wasn’t wild about the idea.

    Bummer. I was a big fan of their stouts and scotch ale.

    Would you mind sharing what distributor and how far back that was? I really liked their beer.
  5. Google the PA and Federal privacy and wiretap laws. If a dashcam is recording you, you are in a public place (like a road, duh) or there is a reasonable doubt that a crime has been or is being committed. If a body cam is recording you, the police were called to that location or they have reason to believe a crime is being/has been committed. If the law inforcement is recording phone conversations they are required to have an airtight warrant or it is inadmissible as evidence. The operative phrase here is “Expectation of privacy”. If you are in your home or behind a closed door or in a vehicle, and you’re on a phone call, there is the “Expectation of Privacy”. There is ZERO reason to assume someone is recording or listening in. The laws that protect privacy are 100% meant to benefit regular old citizens, they are not written to protect law enforcement. No one with a lick of sense would argue for LESS protection of privacy.
  6. Petee: PA’s Wiretap Act passed into law in 1978, perhaps the story you told predates that? Or small town cops were acting outside the law, which is not unheard of.
  7. Pennsylvania is a two party state, that means you cannot record private conversations without the permission of both parties. Recording a private phone conversation is an even more serious offense. If the accused had recorded an interaction that happened in a crowd, or a public place, etc, there is no expectation of “privacy”, which is the case in most of those viral videos that people make. The fact that a police officer was the unknowing party or what was discussed is irrelevant, privacy is a fundamental right of US citizens and the laws protecting reflect that.

    Do you have a link? Google isn’t turning up a new 2019 law.

    It totally slipped my mind that LFG wasn’t local, but the link has a shipping option!

    It is a bummer that prices have risen, BUT they are as delicious as ever, and you’ll actually enjoy them, in contrast to the junk kids normally sell to fundraise.

  14. Another sanctimonious mommy blogger making up a story in an effort to go viral? *Yawn* We have been down this road sooooo many times. Why do people still humor this none sense?
  15. School bus drivers still have to follow the law like anyone else. They can’t cross the yellow line into the opposite lane. The local governments can’t change those laws either, you’d have to call the state. Parents with complaints about speeders would be wise to form neighborhood watches and post signs that violators are being videotaped and license plates are being recorded for the police.
