Bill would make recording crimes illegal in SC

One of the bills waiting for South Carolina lawmakers to go back into session January 14th would make it illegal to record or publish video or audio of a violent crime.

"This is really aimed at what we've seen around the country: a proliferation of people who might not actually be the ones committing the crime but go out there with the people committing the violent crime for the purpose of videotaping it and then putting it up on the Internet," says Sen. Vincent Sheheen, D-Camden, who prefiled the bill.
