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

If you act like a smarty pants and try to tell the cop the law, you may insult his ego.

Sometimes it works. A police officer once approached a photographer I know who was taking some pictures in Central Park. The officer started on how the photographer needed a permit for a commercial shoot (tripod = commercial in the cops eye). Well the photographer started his spiel which included dropping names of people high in the Mayor's office and saying that because of the way he was being treated by the cop that he would cancel future movie shoots, wedding shoots, etc. that he had planned. Turned out he WAS a commercial photographer - just not doing commercial work on THAT day.

The friends he had in the Mayor's office were quite real and I guess the cop did not want trouble for herself so she let him continue taking pictures.
