Re:Handy hints for photographers - be a short arse!
Sometimes? All power ultimately is abused at some point or other. We all do it.
Schools bully their staff, staff bully the kids, police bully citizens... if the framework of the system allows it, it will happen. Plus we now a have lots of pretend police who don't have the brains to exercise commen sense, and a system quite happy tio indulge and encourage the abuse of power and the removal of civil liberties...
We would never have seen that guy being pushed over by the police had these new laws been acted on in full. So what do they fear? What gatherings are they making plans for?
