Law - "Charges officially dropped against NY photographer arrested for taping police"
This post this morning at Poynter, by Julie Moos, reports that: "Long Island photojournalist Phil Datz has been officially cleared of the obstruction charges filed against him after he continued to record police officers when they asked him to stop." It has several links, including this most useful link to a long story, headed "What to do when police tell you to stop taking photos, video." And does it vary if you are a journalist, or not? The story links to another of equal interest, at Gizmodo, headed "Are Cameras the New Guns?."
For background, see this July 10, 2011 ILB entry, and its links.
