So it is a felony but it happened once so justice is not applied and the "system' won't do anything about it- the justice system won't impose justice on the offender(s) who committed a felony - because maybe they did not commit enough or repeated felonies? Why, because there is not enough proof that the party illegally record or committed a felony more than once, one felony is not enough to prosecute? There has to be a 'history' of felony behavior or a pattern of felony behavior to prosecute a felony offence? Since when? Protectionism at it's finest.
