Photographer Arrested for Flag Pole Shot
Via Boingboing, a New York resident amateur photographer Ben Hider took a picture (shown above) of the flag pole of the court house near a train station. The photographer was detained and interrogated by the police. Later, he was released and received an apology from a judge. However, the police offered no apology as they claim there's no guideline on dealing with such issues.
