Innocent photographer or terrorist?

On the BBC News website there's an article about innocent people being arrested for taking photographs in public. This is usually done by policemen who are new to the job and have to be told that making photographs in public is actually permitted and not an act of terrorism. When I was in Scotland last week, I took about 500 photos in public (see slideshow on the right) and nobody arrested me. Maybe it helped that I was surrounded by 50 guys armed with rifles. Then again, a terrorist would probably have similar protection...
