This is getting really stupid. IS it now an offence to take pictures of emergency vehicles?

Madness.

They must feel they are a target. Pictures of a car...thats all it is. Just what we need, more human arrogance coming from cops - people that protect us.

Before everyone gets all silly about this take a moment to think that it goes a little deeper than just taking photos.

A. There have been/are credible threats against police stations etc...They are a target and photos help the bad guys in gathering intel.

B. This guy was in a secure parking lot where he was not supposed to be. It was not "just taking photos." He was charged with tresspass, which means he was in a restricted area. He got in trouble. DUH!!!!

As with everything else, USE COMMON SENSE!!!

a police sergeant told him to ...stay away from the suburban Philadelphia police station. [He] returned the following afternoon to take more photos.

[He] told police he was a hobbyist who posted his photos on the Internet, but he could not recall the name of the Web site

And of course, Budeir, 21, a U.S. citizen of Syrian descent (I only bring that up because the 9-11 hijackers, the shoe bomber, and the Ryanair potential-hijacker were all middle eastern nationals with new citizenship.)

The police had every reason to be suspicious, and press charges.



Someday, we'll look back at this, laugh nervously, and then change the subject.

If the cops dont want people on their property, why was it so easy for this gentleman? If police dont want random people on their property, put fences up, or access gates. Not hard, is it?

Maybe not, but this person was told to shift his ass once, but obviously decided not to heed the warning.

Many police sstations in the U.S. are fairly open to the public. This was done as a design in an effort to make things more accessable to the public, so that the police are not seen as "walled off" from the community. In light of recent events that was maybe not such a good idea. But putting up fences etc is not a cheap thing to do, and we are dealing with government, which moves at the pace of a snail.....

If he would have used common sense he would more than likely had no problem. Just like taking photos at an airport. Use common sense.

Squigee:
If they guy was white, should charges still be pressed?  Insane


I can understand the 'suspicious' part, it's the pressing charges part that I have a problem with.
