As an anti-terrorist security measure, the New York City Transit Authority is apparently going to ban photography on its entire system. If passed, the transit authority police would have the authority to arrest anyone taking photos on a bus or subway. Presumably this will include video as well, but the article doesn’t mention it specifically. Now, how stupid is this? In an age when you can buy spy cameras off the web for under a hundred bucks, what kind of security does this measure provide? They’re willing to trample the rights of absolutely everyone who takes NYC transit, in exchange for nothing. Idiots and fools.
