I've blogged before about Police Officers who ignore the law and their own procedures and think it is ok to detain photographers for taking pictures in public places and often demand that they delete the images.
Now I read about 'Rail Enforcement Officers' who have taken to doing the same. This story is, regrettably, typical of some people in authority who have an important job to do but waste time detaining people they have no right to detain for actions which are in no way against the law. It also shows how badly trained these REOs are.
Hat tip: Thanks to Jonathan Calder at Liberal England for pointing me towards this.
