This Is The Police: Put Down Your Camera

Over at NPR you can find yet another story about people being arrested for filming or photographing law enforcement officers in the line of duty. The NPR reporter takes a typically mamby-pamby stance in the end. The point that many police officers - and the reporter - seem not to get is that they are public employees performing a public function in a democracy. And the talking head from the Fraternal Order of Police does nothing for the cause by describing how police officers have to act without thinking. What I want from law enforcement is thinking, not blind reaction.
