Re: I was taken in handcuffs for photography at the Freeman St Station on the 2

A number of railbuffs have difficulty with interpersonal communication and social cues. These difficulties do not often show up on discussion boards. But in person it can be a problem.

I am not saying the cops were right in this case. They were not.

However, I would want the cops to know more about how to deal with people who are auutistic, have Aspergers or other social difficulties. If the cops understand that in some cases, railbuffs are "mouthing off" because they don't have the skills to be diplomatic (they have a disability), the cops can handle things a little differently.

Making an arrest involves paperwork, trasportation, creating a court date, etc. I want the cops spending their time on real perps, not railbuffs snapping pictures.
