What is this country coming to? No wonder we're losing all our civil liberties! I can't believe the "maintain public order" mindset of some of the posters on this and other railfan message boards. Would they prefer a so-called benevolent dictator to lead and guide us and keep us "safe?"
I hope Mr. Kerzic gets his justice and his day in court. God bless him! (And by the way, I'm a retired police officer.)
If I were in New York I would happily join this guy in photographing and be arrested for it. There was a protest staged on the Los Angeles subway a few months ago where a bunch of photographers got together with their cameras, traveled through the system, taking photos the entire time. New York could use a protest like this.Kaback9 wrote:The problem I have is that NYP is not the place to be photographing, you are expecting trouble if you plan to do it.
