I'm sure that everyone here remembers the story about the Nashua man, Michael Gannon, who was arrested for "wiretapping" when his home security cameras recorded a conversation between two detectives outside of his house before the detectives went inside to get Mr. Gannon's son.Ã‚Â Mr. Gannon watched and listened to the video after the rude police left, and took the video to the police to file a complaint against one of the detectives.Ã‚Â Instead, he got arrested and charged with illegal wiretapping.
The police have apparently now determined that the complaint against the detective was justified, and have decided against prosecuting Mr. Gannon, although they still believe that his actions (keeping a security camera on his property without a big enough sign announcing its presence) were illegal.
