Causing trouble

I chanced upon this site, which puts up a daily photo of the police at work. This is a protest against the government's silly law criminalising the photographing of law enforcement officers.

This prompted a thought.  A policeman friend told me that there is a police open day at Fife Police HQ this weekend. Some awkward sod should report everyone who takes a snap of a copper to, erm, one of the coppers present.

This should cause complete and utter chaos, ruin the police's PR day and publicise what a terrible law Mr Brown and his legions of lunatics have put in place.

Just a thought.

Sounds an excellent idea! I also wondered if those who filmed the police bad behaviour at the G20 protests were later nobbled under the same law?

More on this troubling subject here:

Where do councils stand WRT the appearance of officers on their CCTV cameras? Do they have to turn them off until the shy flowers are out of shot?
