DC Security Guard Interupts Fox5 News Interview With Amtrak Offical Being Interviewed About Photography Being OK
Security interrupts Amtrak spokesman who says photos are OK in D.C.'s union station – Boing Boing I’m not sure how I missed this one from Monday, but BoingBoing is out with a story about the recent harassment of photographers that’s been taking place in DC’s Union Station.
This story is straight out of Catch22 though. While the interview is taking place with a senior Amtrak spokesman saying that photography is absolutely legal in the station, a security guard actually interrupts the interview to say that photography is not allowed. You can watch the entire episode on video here.
One of the other interesting things in the news report is a mention that Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton is looking into drafting legislation to protect the rights of people to take photos.
