Not just the US cops

The cops in Britain have also taken a very heavy hand with photographers at times. There has been a long campaign to stop cops in central London from harassing photographers by misusing anti-terror legislation.

There was also a particularly disgraceful example of police violence against a photographer at a demonstration - the police video of the incident actually reveals their behaviour and it's here

I wrote to the then Home Secretary and my local Member of Parliament complaining about this incident and actually got a a letter back from the head of the cops involved pledging an inquiry, I think they realised that the police had heavily overstepped the mark. The cops still stop people taking photos though.
