Photographers getting hassled on public property by the cops. This kind of stuff upsets Honest Monkey to no end. So let's reiterate. Before September, 2001, you could stand on public property, say a sidewalk, and take pictures of anything within view. After September, 2001, you can still stand on public property and take pictures of anything within view. Here is some text stolen from another site:

You are allowed to photograph anything with the following exceptions:
  • Certain military installations or operations.
  • People who have a reasonable expectation of privacy.
That's it. If you are on a sidewalk or other public property, snap away. The police should know this, and yet they overstep their bounds all the time. Link below to Thomas Hawk and his problems with the police.
