Yes you can film the Police!

When police carried out a routine stop-and-search of her boyfriend on the London Underground, Gemma Atkinson filmed the incident. She was detained, handcuffed and threatened with arrest. She launched a legal battle, which ended with the police settling the case in 2010. With the money from the settlement she funded the production of this animated film, which she says shows how her story and highlights police misuse of counterterrorism powers to restrict photography

Excellent film and commentary. Let's not forget that what the Government (behind the police of course) is MOST afraid of is civil disobedience. This is what they now call "terrorism" in order to marginalise and criminalise perfectly OK acts of resistance and objection (aka "protest"). Thin end of aa long nasty wedge, eh? Phil
