On photography, cops need to get a clue
Glenn Reynolds, renowned libertarian blogger, and professor of law, has written a landmark op-ed on the right to photograph the police.
I have downloaded the public letter from the Department of Justice reminding the Baltimore Police Dept that harassing photographers violates the First, Fourth and Fourteenth amendments to the constitution.
The Supreme Court has ruled that photographers' rights to do so are so well established that the police are stripped of their usual personal immunity if they violate them and can be held personally liable.
If you are interested in photographers' right, his blog, instapundit.com frequently provides links to what's going on.
