Clearly some people just want to be outraged.
Read the thread, the OP is RUBBISH. There is no law allowing police to arrest you for taking pictures nor can it be interpreted to allow that.
Thirdly, there's no law now, or coming into force regarding taking pictures of law enforcement officers and I doubt there ever will be.

For all the people saying this isnt going to happen or the op is wrong then i would ask you to watch the videos posted.
This is already being wrongly enforced anyway & doubt very few actually get away with recording them without some hassle before hand.
There is several examples on youtube where the police or security gaurds are trying to stop people filming or threatening them with arrest, how many do you want me to post?
