Re: Another Photographer Arrested

Outrageous and mind-boggling--seemingly the logical outcome of using the genuine threats of terrorism in a post-9/11 world to expand police powers indiscriminately and correspondingly constrain civil liberties.

The worst of it is that, on balance, the net effect--from what we're told about the specific vulnerability of rail systems, chemical plants, harbors, etc.--is that our overall vulnerability to terrorism is, for the most part, undiminished.

The irony, of course, is that photojournalism and amateur photography offer some means of documenting and controlling otherwise unchecked police malpractice.
