Photos Equal Terrorism Part 3

A security guard at the Fareham Shopping Centre in the UK accused a middle-aged couple of terrorism and banned them for life when they took out a camera to take a picture of their grandchildren


Dear Security, Police and Authorities-at-Large,
Photography did not have any role in the September 11th attacks.
Thank you.

    Well, my friend Gordon Parks, did refer to his camera as a weapon in his autobiograhy “A Choice of Weapons”, but to my knowledge no one was terrorized by that notion.

    A camera is a tool that can be used for a million different things, it’s ridiculous that people can be harassed for using one.
