Taking pictures is a crime

In the UK, Section 76 of the Counter Terrorism Act, which came into force in February of this year, means that, as the BBC put it, "anyone taking a photograph of a police officer could be deemed to have committed a criminal offence".

It makes perfect sense. After all, being photographed or filmed might be embarrassing for them.
