Picture This, and Risk Arrest

I had to share this based on some of the other threads about people having encounters with various enforcement units.

Duane P. Kerzic was stopped by the Amtrak police while taking pictures of a train that he was preparing to enter in a photo contest sponsored by the railroad itself.

I've never experienced any police confrontations. I didn't take pictures, I shot videos instead [Austin21926 on youtube!] The one person so far who has told me to stop filming was a LIRR conductor [well, she looked like a conductor, but she was mainly roaming the platforms] at Jamaica far back on New Years' Day.

 

And that was the same day that

while I was filming. However, When I did film, I went out of my way to evade police officers. B) :tup:

Anyone who looks on Amtrak's website knows that its perfectly legal to take photos on the platform. Sadly, Amtrak police don't know anything about that.....
