taking pictures in public?
what the hell is wrong with that? i'm out in public, it's public record that i'm out in public. anyone can take my picture. my picture is recorded EVERY DAY that i walk within the shadow of the world trade center. i haven't been targeted because I'M NOT DOING ANYTHING WRONG. but, if they were to bust me because they had a picture of me walking down the street lighting up my battie, then that would fucking suck for me. but, shit, tough for me.
how do you bust a strip club for prostitution unless you catch someone in there paying for sex?
these arguments hold a lot of water in the ideal world. but that's about it. this is reality.
