While other jurisdictions are protecting the right to fim, and mandating body cameras for law enforcement - preserving evidence to both protect law enforcement from false accusations and deter abuse of authority; Arizona sponsors bill to censor evidence conceal potential exposure criminal wrongdoing by police.

From ericpetersautos:

Arizona lawmakers want to make it illegal – a criminal offense – to film cops on private property.
In (air quotes) your home. ... If SB 1054 becomes law, anyhow.

If it does, AZ residents will be required to obtain the permission of any cop before they may lawfully record his actions. The legality of the cop’s conduct is ultimately irrelevant. He will be able to arrest you, if you film or otherwise record him without his prior ok. ...

No surprise, SB 1054 was introduced by aRepublican, AZ State Rep. John Kavanaugh of District 8). Even less surprisingly, Kavanaugh is an ex-cop. An ex New Jersey cop. New Jersey is a notably corrupt state, run by thugs like Chris Christie – who is known to have used his powers to abuse his political opponents and steer lucrative state contracts to family and friends like a real-life Tony Soprano. “Law and order” Republicans like Christie – and Kavanaugh – use the law to order things to their liking. La cosa nostra… this thing of ours. ...
