(im suggesting the other guy acted like a jerk, you actually acted with tact, which is highly iregular with photographers
seeing we have a camera, and we think every view is ours for the taking, and to hell with the people who say NO )

its a fine line ...
This is very true.

If someone behaves like a jerk with a camera (to assert his civil rights or whatever) then three things will happen:

(1) He will give himself a bad name
(2) He will give other photograpers a bad name
(3) He will have difficulty taking any good pictures

How could anyone want that?
