If you told me this story was from China, North Korea or old Soviet Republic then I'd understand. But the UK !!! As a amateur photographer I have read many of these stories of people being abused by Police, usually PCSO's, in public spaces taking innocent photographs. And we are supposed to live in a free and democratic country ...... my arse!!
The kid did exactly right, challenge a mis informed Police officer who used his supposed public order power to put I youngster down. And we wonder why teenagers have no respect for authority! I am not sure age was the issue here as the copper was on one.
Anti terrorism laws are being over abused and it will only get worse, if its not bad enough already.
