Photographer Arrested for Taking Pictures of Cops
Radley Balko rounds up some links about a man who was arrested for taking photographs of police officers conducting their duties, including, amusingly, photographs of himself being harrased and arrested. (One wonders how he managed that, actually.)
Can someone explain to me how it can possibly be illegal to take photographs of police officers in public places? Certainly, it’s not illegal for police to take pictures of citizens in public places. Of the two, the latter strikes me as far more problematic.
