    Your evealuation of your police department seems a bit skewed...perhaps from a negative personal experience??? I doubt that they let murderers and rapists go, but...you live there and I don't.

    I would suggest you report the matter to the police, hire a lawyer and drop a letter of intent to sue on the idiot...

    The only way to hold onto the rights you have is to stand up for them when they are threatened.

    If you had a right, or permission to be, where you were and were not infringing on the idiot's privacy rights, shoot away! (Damn the torpedos! Full speed ahead!)

    Now, if his house was between you and the sunset, there may be room for discussion...

    I've set up my tipod on the sidewalk of my local town and started shooting in broad daylight; most don't even give me a second glance. (The migrant workers sometimes look a little nervous.) Those people that do engage me in polite conversation and go about their business.

    I feel lucky. People here are mostly photo friendly. When I am wandering around the neighborhood taking pics, the usual reactions are to ask:

    1. What kind of camera is that?
    2. Do you use digital?
    3. Are you a professional?
    4. Do you need me to move or stand somewhere?

    I stopped to shoot a dog peering into the cheese shop last weekend and he moved before I got the camera up. The owner asked me about the camera, chatted a while, and asked where I wanted him and the dog so I could get the shot I missed. The dog was not quite as cooperative. With one exception, mentioned earlier, people have been very friendly. But then we also have a local gallery and an artists coop, not to mention the occasional wandering clown.

    I had similar funny experience a while back. I was setting up to take a 4X5 picture of a church not far away and a stranger walked up and said he worked a an Extra in the movies and would I like him to stand in the picture? I told him thank you but I was trying NOT to get people in the picture. He looked confused and walked away.

    This is a bad thread.

    Although I share the concern of the original poster with regard to being able to shoot without worrying about being assaulted Mr X probably should not have been named.

    Assuming the account is factual,the OP most certainly should have called the cops. In any event we are doing Mr X an injustice.

    I have removed the man's name from this thread. I think the risk of legal ramifications down the road are too likely.
