The Coming War Against Personal Photography and Video

Wearable computers>Personal right to privacy ,where are we headed?
Taking photographs of things that are plainly visible from public spaces is a constitutional right – and that includes federal buildings, transportation facilities, and police and other government officials carrying out their duties. Unfortunately, there is a widespread, continuing pattern of law enforcement officers ordering people to stop taking photographs from public places, and harassing, detaining and arresting those who fail to comply.

Yes, TRUE that. All government agencies see us as counter spies to what they constantly do with all their surveillance cameras pointed & set up in both public & private spaces to watch our every move. In these spaces it seems that we have no right in saying that it is unconstitutional to be spied upon 24/7 by them. So, it may seem that we make them feel especially threatened by the simple fact that we may actually catch them in some of their wrong doings. Accountability & laws should be a 2way street No ? Well, perhaps as far journalism is concerned it should...Game on.
