A mother in Norfolk, Virginia, is facing a felony charge for putting a recording device in her 9-year-old daughter's backpack to catch evidence that the girl was being bullied. After the device was found, Sarah Sims was charged with felony use of device to intercept oral communication and misdemeanor contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Sims said she only planted the device after all of her calls and emails to the school about bullying were ignored. "If I'm not getting an answer from you what am I left to do?" she said.

I wonder if the mother was white if this would have happened.

What are you talking about Danni? Its pretty much illegal to tape any government employee. Especially without their knowledge. Public Service unions have made sure of that.

The irony is that if she refuses to trust the school with her children (with or without cause), she goes to jail for that too.

Unions my ass. It's politicians who don't want you recording them as they accept bribes and make deals. Now, explain to me why it should be illegal for this mother or anyone else to record what someone else says to you? Ever known a woman who was repeatedly threatened by an angry ex? Happens every day. So they shouldn't be allowed to record the threats? These laws are purely for the protection of crooked politicians and then they are used to also protect bullies, former spouses, etc. There is no legitimate reason for them.

To be quite honest, politicians should have word they say recorded. 24/7. Police wear cameras today, politicians should too. Anyone convicted of domestic violence should also.

You pulled that from your ass. Virginia is a Right-To-Work (for less) state. Workers don't get to demand any rights.

Why would you make up a lie like that?

In Florida, it is illegal to record anyone without their knowledge without a court order. The politicians love that law.
