Photographer detained in Middlesbrough

Grabbed by cops, goons, and clerks

Despite the campaign to have police, security guards, and other minor officials, recognise that the law allows for taking photographs in public places it is still apparent that some of them just don’t get it!

See this account in Boing Boing of a man detained in Middlesbrough by SEVEN people, before being released by a policewoman without charge.

We really are in danger of becoming a very illiberal country to live in, surrounded by people with very irrational fears, and others who seem to think they know what’s best for us (despite being totally ignorant of the legal situation.)
