A police inspector tried to block a teenager taking photos at a public event in a town centre saying it was 'silly' and 'gay' and 'stupid'.
Officers prevented Jules Mattsson - then 15 - from taking pictures at a military parade in Romford, east London, in June 2010.
The Metropolitan Police said compensation had been paid and an apology issued.

And in other parades in England the cops let Muslims verbally bash the troops returning from Afghanistan and Iraq.

'The inspector told (Jules) he was a public hazard and said that photographing in public was 'anti-social behaviour.'
So, are all those thousands of surveillance cameras in London evidence of 'anti-social behaviour' on the part of the police?

If they didn’t want anyone to see it, why have a parade?
Or is that a silly question?

The cop is displaying what appears to be the parade route.

I'd like some of these a-hole ULEOs get personally cited for contempt of the public. The fine comes out of their pension plan, or the union pension plan.
It's Common sense that a guy would use common sense or lose something of value to him.
Yes, indeed. If there were a security issue involved, showing the parade route would be a definite breech.
In 1995 I felt sorry for the people of Hong Kong when the Brits turned them over to China. I was mistaken.
If they didnt want anyone to see it, why have a parade?
Keep it up, Western World. (sarc) Soon we won't be able to tell the difference between the past, present, and fiction.
This is the fictitious Norsefire Party in a movie.
