Of course, later on, they decided not to charge the picture-taking man with anything because, you know, HE DIDN'T DO ANYTHING WRONG. But why let pesky things like "the law" get in the way of enforcing The Law? This guy was taking pictures with his own camera, in his own yard, of public servants performing public activities in a public place. When will these civilian yahoos learn? Police should be allowed to run roughshod over those they are attempting to "police." I mean, what do you want from these guys? To, like, set examples and crap? To follow the same rules they are sworn to uphold? Come on, Pollyanna. Get real. I like my police work with a liberal dash of arbitrary power abuse. What, you don't? Sounds like somebody doesn't Support The Troops.
P.S. Thanks to BK for passing this info along. Even though you clearly do not support our men and women in uniform. You are a traitor to The Flag. But thanks!
