What do you make of this?

Why did the police officer treat the photographer this way? As far as I could see, he wasn't doing anything illegal. I'm not too familiar with the laws in the US, but I thought that everyone is allowed to take photos in public places.

.. And Times Square is a public place, right?

The problem with videos like this is you have no idea what that guy was doing right before the video started. There's no way to say if what the cop was doing was justified or not.

"Mr. Sands had his press card revoked and was later arrested trying to take photos without credentials."

It is 'public', but the city allows the space to be rented out to private functions for special events. (Such as filming movies or tv shows) During those times areas get roped off and become restricted access.

Publicly owned land is not instantly a free for all, and there are many cases where your access to it may be restricted. Most government buildings are public, but try walking into the Head of Government's or Head of State's office and see how well that goes over. And you will be hard pressed to justify why you should instantly be allowed to do so in my mind.

"One mam's colllusion is another man's press pass" just about sums it up. Legal access to privatized events are how many photographers make their living above others - building a portfolio that is unique and having the ability to capture photographs few others can.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.

Yep, people don't like being given grief & I'd bet something happened or was said to set the policeman off.

It's obvious there was more to that before hand for the cop to get heavy with him. Cops on their own don't show such determination without warrant or reason

If there's a lesson in this....

it's to use your lens hood. Might have saved that lens.

I wonder if he's been dropped by his insurance company yet?

Someone dishonest about his press pass, is probably also dishonest with regard to crossing the Barricade.
I can't believe i am saying this but...... i trust the cop on this one.
