Young Brit photojournalist detained

For taking photos of young military cadets during an Armed Forces parade.

This is frightening and absurd. The young fellow had the presence of mind to begin audio recording during the detainment, and he’s put together a video collage of the “offensive” photos. Once again, people are parading for public view, and someone in authority thinks that they should not be photographed?

This is in the UK, but it shows that in the US, we need to be vigilant in our rights to photograph in public places.
