Photographing Police to become Illegal…

The trouble is the arseholes that are police officers will use this as a means to preventing them being photographed when they batter protestors un-necessarily. It means less accountability than they have now.

You would also have though that the biggest users of images that have police officers in them would have been mounting a campaign to prevent this becoming law. Once again it means that the newspapers will expect us to get the pictures and expect us to bare the consequences. On this matter the media has been very quiet.
