ACLU Memo Regarding Photographers' Rights in Public

The ACLU has just released a memo regarding photographers' rights in public spaces, particularly as it relates to the photographing or videoing of police officers. The ACLU's statement, under their 'Know Your Rights' section, is based on several court decisions that have come down in recent months or years. The article can be found here.

My advice, just because you're legally entitled to photograph a particular person or occurrence doesn't make it wise to do so. When in doubt, defer to that age-old idiom: Discretion is the better part of Valor.
