    I'm sorry I wasn't clear. They don't enhance security, except maybe in some people's minds.

    If they did it would still be too high a price to pay.

    That's right, assuming the article is correct and truthful. It only presents one side of the story. Rushing to judgement that this is a huge violation of the 4th Ammendment is premature. Did she do something to provoke the officer or provoke the incident?

    I'm not sure why photographers and journalists are always presumed to be so saintly.

    Because when government and police assume that someone making wrong doings we get results like in London when police killed innocent Brasillian man assuming he is terrorist...

    The officer himself said that she did not -- that he did not suspect her of commiting any crime. Which was the point of the original article, and why the police dropped charges after arresting her for... nothing.

    Agreed, as a nation we are in the grip of paranoia. There are some places in the country that warrant extra security, and other areas that don't; it shouldn't be at the expense of the destruction of our personal liberty.

    I don't understand why those proponants of the wasteful boondagle that we call the Department of Homeland Security and the Patriot Act continually feel that it is the citizens who are in error.

    Well in Ireland anyway people are presumed innocent until proven otherwise.

    This harrassment of photography is just too stupid for words, I mean any terrorist will have Google Earth or something not a LF camera. I have to say I'd be very nervous as a tourist over there and so have no plans to return, much as I did like it.

    I haven't photographed in the US in over 6yrs but the idea of being suspected of something when photographing is bizarre. In NZ everyone stops and chats to me and looks at the Dorff in awe, maybe NZ's time will come too and instead of people thinking "isn't that neat" they'll think "what is that guy up to?"..

    its the same in Ireland, Sean.
    A police patrol car reversed back to where I had my tripod/camera once and the cop asked me for advice on what camera to buy for his wife.
