So if I make audio recording of a person without that persons' knowledge and I am caught I can be charged with a felony for illegal wiretapping.But if the law abiding cop does it it is permissible in court. Damn I have to become a cop so I can legally commit crimes. Think I will sign up for classes this week.

Don't have the evidence, but I expect the cops had a court order, which is as difficult to get as saying, "hey Judge, ". Drug sales and shoplifting seem to be the only crimes that get solved around here. PS- if you're over 10 and under 50, don't wear a back pack on Storrs St- you'll be swarmed with back up.
