Recording Conversations with Government Officials?

Unless a conversation is regarding a confidential subject matter, but is otherwise in a public space, why shouldn’t every convesation be allowed to be taped? Isn’t there a Supreme Court case that basically states that if you’re out in public, you don’t expect to have any privacy?  If an incident is in a public space, there seems to be no reason to assume it cannot be recorded.  I’d forsee restrictions on whether or not the government entity doing the recording is allowed to release the information. But the private individual should be allowed to release information…

Something to think about further…
