New York City police operations order regarding photography:

  1. Members of the service are reminded that photography and the videotaping of public places, buildings and structures are common activities within New York City. Given the City’s prominence as a tourist destination, practically all such photography will have no connection to terrorism or unlawful conduct. […]
  2. Members of the service may not demand to view photographs taken by a person absent consent or exigent circumstances. […]

Read the whole thing. Can we issue something like this to every police officer in the country? (via)

    Does that instruction booklet specifically mention that police officers may not demand that photographers stop photographing police officers themselves? That seems to be the real squirming fire ant up their poopshoots.
