Sometimes ya gotta ask. I recall whilst being in Mexico last year, there was some incident in town, and there were Militia or Military Police or some such "police-on-steroids" individuals around - complete with machine guns, and I thought they would have made an interesting shot. I asked one of them if I could take a photo of him, and in no uncertain terms he said "No".

So I took the shot anyway, and a chase pursued, they were all after me, through the streets and back-alleys, and then I tripped on the cobblestones, and one of them grabbed my pant-leg. He held on tight, and he pulled & pulled......just like I'm pulling on your leg right now.
(The first paragraph is true).
