Oklahoma Working to Pass Bills Making It Illegal to Publish Photos or Videos of Law Enforcement
Yesterday (02-24-21) Oklahoma legislators passed another bill, HB 2273. It's a companion bill to SB 6 which passed the Oklahoma State Senate earlier. Both bills would make it illegal to photograph or video law enforcement and publish it on an online site, forum or social media platform. There's been a lot of confusion and concern with the two bills as you can imagine. So what exactly will the new law(s) do and what are the penalties be for violating the law(s)? Also, if this does become law when will it take effect?
