civil liberties :: and a church…

So today the BJP reports that Grant Smith, a freelance photographer, was briefly arrested for taking pictures of a church next to the Merrill Lynch bank building in London. This is after all the news in the last few days covering wrongful stops and arrests of photographers (in fact, he even showed the police the Indie’s front page about this from a couple of days ago…).  But the ball is now rolling – see Hold the Front Page for a statement of intent from the police. Maybe all this coverage will finally crack this particular nonsense…
