If You're Not Doing Anything Wrong, You Have Nothing to Fear. Don't Count on It.
Amateur Photographer, which bills itself as"The world's number one weekly photography magazine," is not necessarily where you would expect to find disturbing stories about state surveillance. On second thoughts, perhaps you would.

Boy, the British have really gone over the edge. No pictures of public places. No pictures of other people without their permission. No pictures of game hunting.
We Americans are much more libertarian. Our police just shoot you if they don't like your looks [and then, of course, plant a weapon on you]. Never harrassment of this sort. Well, an occasional beating of unarmed "suspects," but that isn't really harrassment, is it?
