Are they really all\nterrorists, or does everyone just think they are?\n\nSince 9/11, there has been an increasing war on\nphotography. Photographers have been harrassed, questioned,\ndetained, arrested or worse, and declared to be unwelcome. We've\nbeen repeatedly told to watch out for photographers, especially\nsuspicious ones. Clearly any terrorist is going to first photograph\nhis target, so vigilance is required.\n...\nThis is worth fighting. Search "photographer rights" on Google and\ndownload one of the several wallet documents that can help you if\nyou get harassed; I found one for the UK, US, and Australia. Don't\ncede your right to photograph in public. Don't propagate the\nterrorist photographer story. Remind them that prohibiting\nphotography was something we used to ridicule about the\nUSSR. Eventually sanity will be restored, but it may take a while.
