Art student arrested for filming a building

An Italian student has described how she was stopped by police under anti-terrorist legislation while filming buildings, and later arrested, held in a police cell for five hours and given a fixed penalty notice.

The jumped up little git of a community support officer (PCSOs) in the photo caused Simona Bonomo, 32, an art student at London Metropolitan University at London Metropolitan University, to be nicked.But she filmed the moment on 19 November. Watch the video and read the report.

Guardian journo went and filmed the Gherkin building just to see what the response would be..incredible how the cops are so up their own arse!

The cops say 'According to legislation, digital images may be viewed as part of a search under section 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000 provided viewing is to determine whether the images are of a kind which could be used in conjunction with terrorism.'
