Another photographer arrested

BUREAUCRACY GONE MAD AGAIN. ON THE NEWS TODAY ANOTHER ARTIST/PHOTOGRAPHER WAS ARRESTED, UNDER THE TERRORISM ACT, FOR TAKING PHOTOS OF A BUILDING SITE AT THE ELEPHANT AND CASTLE.

THIS MAN IS AN ARTIST, HAS BEEN TAKING PHOTOS OF THE AREA FOR TWENTY YEARS.

HE WAS HELD IN CUSTODY FOR FIVE HOURS. HIS LOCAL MP GOT INVOLVED AND HE WAS RELEASED.

TOTAL MADNESS NOW, POLICE ARE NOT USING ANY DISCRETION.

Re: Another photographer arrested

He was actually arrested for possession of a lock knife which was apparently for 'sharpening his pencils'. The arrest had nothing to do with him taking photographs.

He really needs to learn about those new fangled 'pencil sharpener' thingies, although, come to think of it, possession of anything that allows you to write might be deeply suspicious in the eyes of some members of the Met.

Re: Another photographer arrested

In fairness, a lock knife is illegal and has been for many years. If that formed the basis for the man's arrest then fair enough. We have enough problems with knife crime in this country as it is so having an 'artist' trying to get away with it on the basis that he's just a harmless artist who 'needs' the knife to sharpen his pencils does not help in any way shape or form.

The above is based entirely on the comment of Hacker's that he was arrested for possesion of a lock knife, it is not a response to the actual situation as I know nothing about the pertinent facts.

Cheers,
Rob

Re: Another photographer arrested

Only problem there is that as far as I unerstand it, the knife was found tucked away in a rucksack, not in a pocket or in his waistband.

The reason they were searching the rucksack? He was taking photographs.

Re: Another photographer arrested

Can someone link to the original report so we can finally pin down some facts?

Re: Another photographer arrested

Its still very vague on what he was doing to attract the polices attention in the first place and then what exchange (if any) took place before the search. Subject to those points being clarified its difficult to form an informed opinion, after all the only real info we have so far is that he was arrested for having a knife, it was later destroyed and he was released several hours later without charge

Re: Another photographer arrested

Look, the bloke was taking pitchers in the street and when we questioned him, he said his name was "Reuben". Well, bound to be a terrorist, innee? I blame that PACE stuff, meself. Five minutes in the back room, with the old rubber truncheon and we'd have had him coughing to being the local al kayeeda boss, right? Reeesult!

<sigh>

Re: Another photographer arrested

These reasons are why I am too afraid to get my camera out in public.

I always fear someone will say something to me or think I am being strange.

Sometimes I see a shot I want and because people are around I just leave it.

I really need to get past this.
