Dudley Hiibel

The story of Dudley Hiibel is an interesting one, and says alot about the rights of citizens in a democracy to protect their privacy. The local sheriff in the Nevada town demanded ID, Dudley refused – and what ensued has been released on video onto the internet – it is notably however, the police camera that caught the incident.

The case comes up in the US Supreme Court in March. I shall be following this one. [via Dan]
