You Can’t Picture This

After being harassed by authorities on a busy street, Rajesh Thind investigates the photographers’ rights issue in London. The one particularly aggressive officer perfectly encapsulates the fearful authority who isn’t quite sure what he’s after or what he’s enforcing, he just thinks it’s “suspicious.” “Can you tell me why you’re filming here? Gimme a good reason!” and “Gimme ID first!” 

John Toner from the National Union of Journalists says in the video, “Taking pictures using film [or] video is not in itself a crime.”
