Cop Seizes Woman’s iPad For Recording And Won’t Return It

A woman was recording with her iPad at a Pennsylvania township meeting. This is completely legal under PA’s Sunshine Act, specifically section 711. While at this meeting, a policeman confiscated her iPad because she was recording, and would neither return it or issue a receipt for her illegally seized property. When the woman and several other people peacefully confront the officer outside the township building over returning what she rightfully owns, he threatens her with arrest if she does not leave, and that in his own words the iPad is “mine for the time being”.
