You Have the Right to Remain Silent...

This morning, an article ran in The Washington Post addressing civil liberties associated with our right to take photographs in public places. Click HERE for the full article.

Essentially, law enforcement will often disallow citizens to take photos or demand to see photos, and this is often a violation of the citizens' rights.

To combat the practice of harassing photographers (amateur and professional) for taking photographs, a group of photogs are collecting photographs that resulted in police detention, arrest, or (mostly) questioning, and they have posted them HERE - in a Flickr account hosted by the Admin Group "DC Photo Rights."
