Cop who threatened Photographer found Guilty


The story, in case you need a refresher, is the one that involved an anonymous UK photographer and the police officer who threatened to make his life “a living hell” for photographing the scene of a crash from a safe distance away in a public space. The officer claimed that only press were allowed to take photos at a ‘crime scene,’ which is not the case, and seized his camera as evidence.
