UPDATE: Lawyer and civil rights activist Christopher King has picked this case up. It promises to be an interesting case, as Mr. Gannon plans to sue once he beats the charges and because the police intend to make an example of him for allegedly being “verbally abusive”.

A city man is charged with violating state wiretap laws by recording a detective on his home security camera, while the detective was investigating the man’s sons.

Michael Gannon, 49, of 26 Morgan St., was arrested Tuesday night, after he brought a video to the police station to try to file a complaint against Detective Andrew Karlis, according to Gannon’s wife, Janet Gannon, and police reports filed in Nashua District Court.

Police instead arrested Gannon, charging him with two felony counts of violating state eavesdropping and wiretap law by using an electronic device to record Karlis without the detective’s consent.

You can’t record people on your own property? This guy had a sign, so it wasn’t illicit. He wanted to use the tape to complain about a cop, what kind of irony is that?

    I am shure a majority of the responses on this page are cops. Unless you have been acused you don’t really understand that cops lie because it is more of a business than protecting you anymore. Businesses have cameras but you don’t see me suing tham for invation of my privacy in my credit card numbers or if I am bying rubbers. And did they throw the camera man in jail who taped the rodny king thing.

    I will just say this…NASHUA NH POLICE ARE PATHETIC AND COMPLETLY OUT OF CONTROL. THEY THINK BECAUSE THEY HAVE A BADGE THEY ARE KING SHIT! NO SERIOUSLY..THEY NEED TO FOCUS ON REAL CRIMES BESIDES FOLLOWING CARS AROUND AND PULLING PEOPLE OVER FOR DRIVING 5 MILES OVER THE SPEED LIMIT. PLEASE, THEY TALK ABOUT GANGS ECT..FOCUS ON THAT..TODAY I WAS DRIVING DOWN MAIN STREET AND COUNTED 6 PEOPLE PULLED OVER! AND THEN DONT YA KNOW..I GET PULLED OVER FOR GOING AROUND THE CORNER A LITTLE TO FAST THAN I SHOULD HAVE! MY GOODNESS THE ECONOMY IS BAD THEN GIVES THESE USELESS COPS A LIFE AND FIRE THEM! THEY ARE REVOLTING IN ALL SHAPES AND FORMS..I COULD TYPE FOR DAYS OF HOW THEIR ATTITUDES ARE JUST WRONG,HOW THEY ARE JUST WRONG..

  3. I have just left the courthouse where the cops and the judge are crooked,they cover each others bottoms so well you cant tell where one nose begins and the butt ends,If I was on the jury for Mr.Gannon, I would vote for him to get the max he could, why should we keep getting pushed around by people,just because they have a badge or hammer in thier hands, that doesnt mean their correct and just. Why was that person talking to his sons anyway? I have had a welfare worker come to my house,because of a ex brother in law not wanting me to see my husband so he could take his money for “rent”so he told the welfare I let a “boyfriend” molest my daughter while I watched,I didnt have a boyfriend, I wanted to keep my husband, IT NEVER HAPPENED,I NEVER EVEN WATCHED THAT KIND OF MOVIES,and that worker asked my 12 and 8 year old if I held them down for my boyfriend to have his way with them,and he described the “way” he was talking about.My daughters came in tramatized and told me what he said and I told him to never talk to my kids again and how dare he think that was ok,just because everyone elses kids have sex at that age, I wanted to keep my kids,kids for as long as possible,without corruption like that in their minds. COPS,JUDGES,ATTORNEYS,YOU NAME IT, PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE, AND PEOPLE MESS UP SOMETIMES,dont only give the RECORDING rights to some and not the others, it was at his own house and he should have the right on knowing whats going on in his home with his family,why else would you even want a surveliance cameras on your property? look at the ones who did it to see what the babysitters did to thier babies, the babies couldnt talk,and if you have to let the babysitters know their being recorded,then they would take the babies out of view and some could end up dead. Ifyou dont like what someone is recording about you, dont do what your doing when you got caught. I hope his lawyer sticks with it and sues the city for the arrest and stress, I would if I was a lawyer.not just for him ,but for his whole family.
