“Nobody is looking to violate anybody’s civil rights or deny anybody’s constitutional rights,” Mr. Kelly said. “But when you check with law enforcement agencies, they have uncovered photographs of subway and rail systems from various terrorist organizations. And I don’t believe they were going into somebody’s scrapbook.”
The New York Times reported recently that photographers have once again been banned from making images near or on subway trains or the bus system that supports most of New York life.
If you are a “serious” photographer, though, you could always apply for a permit. How ridiculous is that? Despite what Mr. Kelly says, I say our rights are being hijacked.
