This recent change is -deeply- troubling. In the post 9/11 world, for the first time ever in our history, we cannot photgraph or record something happening in public.
I cannot remember anywhere that this is the case.
Even area 51 can be photographed if you can find the right mountaintop and lens. Now you can get detained for being seen photographing a bridge, a train, a courthouse, etc. Some lady was detained for doing nothing more than videotaping outside on the sidewalk at the democrat convention.
We used to scoff when people were not allowed to take photos in certain areas of Red Square, etc.
Now we are living that nightmare. This needs to be ruled on by the USSC. NO public official, working in public should be immune to being taped. Nobody should be able to join in and interfere as they do so, but simply running a cam is a bright line between totalitarian and free.
It will be interesting to see if those who want to claim RACIAL PROFILING on the officers right to identify illegal aliens will bother filming.
