Photographers are Terrorists in England too!

Well, if misery loves company, it t appears that photographers in England are being treated like those in America, suspect terrorists. Those that have followed events in English law and photography are aware that England passed laws a few years ago that if interpreted to the letter, could have visitors from other countries arrested for taking a snapshot of almost anything.

Wel at least in England they are taken to court and now some are being vindicated with financial compensation. In America, the photographer is usually threatened, taken in for hours of interrogations and then released with warnings of "Don't take any more pictures!" and threats of being put on watch lists.

The link to the news article about England is here: http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/photo-news/538834/amateur-photographer-wins-10-000-police-payout

Don't know how much 10,000 pounds is but I am sure it is a princely sum.

An associated case link is here: http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/photo-news/534399/amateur-photographer-wins-police-payout-update-5-05pm

For a downloadable copy of a abstract by Morgan Manning dealing with these issues go here:
