useful information – photography and civil liberties
I didn’t know this, but it seems like useful information to share. Apparently, the police have no right to confiscate your camera, even if you’ve photographed or recorded a crime. They can ask for contact info so that they can use it as evidence in court at a later date, but they can’t take it away from you without your permission. There’s a .pdf linked about halfway through that’s a good breakdown written by a lawyer of what you have the right to do with a camera.
