I would not have given him any info. Taking photos in a public place is perfectly legal and the police has absolutely nothing on you.

Yes if someone reports suspicious behavior, they should follow up and check, but once it was established that you took photos that should be it. End of story.

It's the perfect example how the word 'security' is abused and a blanket excuse to intimidate people, control people and give the police/government more power over the people. And this also shows how this does absolutely nothing to make us any safer at all!

The question remains: What can we do about it?
