New York going the same as the UK?

Well it looks like the Police in New York are looking to the same draconian laws that snappers in the UK are in fear off according to the New York Post.

You may think that no one has been stopped yet under the new terrorism act and photography but that is not the case.

When I was covering the Put People First march in London (a few days before the G20 protests) I saw a a police sergeant and a snapper; the policeman was ordering him to delete the images on is camera, I tried to intervene and was threatened with arrest for obstructing an police officer. The snapper had just photographed some police waiting near their vans at Marble Arch.
