Town Passes Recording Ordinance After Cop Caught Dissing Obama

Posted: Updated:
Helmetta, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Steven Wronko is a Helmetta, New Jersey resident who recently taped local police officer, Richard Recine, saying that he doesn't have to follow the U.S. Constitution because President Obama doesn't.

“Obama has decimated the friggen Constitution so I don't give a damn, cause if he doesn't have to follow the Constitution, we don't have to,” Recine is heard saying on tape.

Well now, the Helmetta town council met last night to discuss an ordinance that would ban the unauthorized taping of a public official in a public municipal building, such as the recording Wronko uncovered of officer Recine.

This drama all began at the Helmetta animal shelter where Wronko adopted a dog that turned out to be very unhealthy, costing him over $4,000 in medical bills.

“She had four different types of parasites, she was anemic, she had to have a blood transfusion and the same goes for her mother and also all her siblings that we've been in touch with,” Wronko explained.

Wronko went to city hall to file an OPRA request related to the animal shelter because he suspected neglect. That is when and where officer Recine made the remarks about not following the Constitution. Recine has since resigned.

After attending last night's meeting, Wronko is questioning whether this new ordinance that passed is also unconstitutional.

“It's going to be against the law to record in public which I brought up is against the law. You're allowed to record public officials and public employees on public property, that includes a public building. They ignored me,” Wronko said.
