Photograph a copper? You are now a terrorist suspect

Via the Register, I learn the story of David Gates, who dared to photograph an unmarked police car that was illegally parked, and found himself being questioned under 'anti-terrorist' laws.

As has been crystal-clear, at least since Walter Wolfgang (above) was dragged out of the Labour conference and detained under these laws, the phony 'war on terror' has been used to undermine our freedom by granting arbitrary and easily-abused powers to the police.
