If there are no laws against taking photographs in public in the US…Why are so many photographers arrested?

Whos job is more important, a second year photography student or a police officer? Dumb question right? Does that always settle a dispute between a  photographers freedom of speech and an officers ability to do his job?  While most police officers are passive about cameras during the normal course of the day, when things heat up, a camera is nearly always viewed with suspicion by law enforcement. This video is a scenario that happens WAY too much. Also be sure to download the “Photographers Rights” PDF file below. Listen to the threats by the police officer. All of which were illegal.
