Everyday 1A: What happens when a private film crew demands no photos outside the Courts?

Your First Amendment rights do not disappear at another citizen's request, if properly exercized.

Your First Amendment rights do not disappear at another citizen’s request, if properly exercised.

The faces, vehicle tag(s), signs, and other identifying information are censored because I am making a point that our everyday First Amendment rights can face challenges in any city, state, or region at any time.  It does not matter who the deputy is, or where this incident took place.  Each violation of our rights erodes the rights of all citizens; an injury to one is an injury to all.

The deputy appeared as if he was “on duty” and could have arrested me at any point in time.  I could not risk arrest, or I would have directly challenged the demand to stop photography by refusing to stop taking photographs.

Pop quiz – if your rights were broken in this manner (a commercial venture “bans” public photography through security dressed in full law enforcement uniform), what would YOU have done?  Comments appreciated, no spam.
