This is the picture that BBC photographer Jeff Overs was taking when he was suspected of being a terrorist.


It’s been almost a year since the United Kingdom enacted a law that turned photographers into terrorists but it is only now that the British mainstream media is making an issue about it.

And that is only because a photographer from the British Broadcasting Corporation was harassed as he was photographing a sunset over St. Paul’s Cathedral. The cop demanded his name, address and date-of-birth as a counter-terrorism measure.

BBC photographer Jeff Overs came on a video segment on the BBC to describe his experience and it’s almost comical to see the reaction of one of the other journalists on the set. At 1:09 to be exact.

It’s as if she just awoke from a coma and discovered her civil liberties had been stripped.
