Remember! In today's America, photography is a crime.

Want to see proof the terrorists have won and we're rapidly heading down a path to fascism in a frantic bid to "be safe?" How about a sheriff's deputy threatening to arrest a 12 year old girl for "unlawful photography!"

I am deeply worried about how this sort of thing is happening more and more, not just abroad but in the US as well. What risks might I be taking with my freedom (and my $4,500 worth of gear) each time I "dare" to take a picture of the public / in public space / of something somebody deems "sensitive?" If this becomes the accepted "norm," it has deeply chilling implications for a few core values of the country such as free speech, don't you think?
