The problem is you would miss your expensive Canon gear when it gets confiscated for evidence.
That's an arrest record I'd be proud to have.
At my age I'm fed up with a life of people telling me I should be afraid of everything.
People see me carrying a camera and sometimes ask what I'm photographing. I usually tell them, "Anybody or anything that gets in my way."
When I was young I always said if I got to be old, I'd be a cantankerous old geezer.
Have camera. Will use it.A person locally tried photographing Electrical Towers and was promptly arrested and tossed in prison, the Police told him it was illegal, and when he disagreed, they arrested him.
Later, the city paid out $$$ to settle a lawsuit, but he still has a arrest record, and even worse, the Mayor of the small town is defending the arrest and it sounds like he would support doing it again.
