I have to deal with this from the other side. I have called the police on suspicious photographers a few times. Photography has really been restricted in sensitive areas. One's definition of a suspicious photographer or person's is very debatable. After a long argument I have refused to report some people. Just because they were doing nothing wrong. They were near a sensitive area, but had no ideal that they were. Just a family having a picnic, taking family photographs. Just a little common sense kept from ruining their familiy outing.
Last time I called the police it involved Arabic speaking young males within a sensitive area with cameras in a remote area. There are no Arabs that live in this area. Suspicious, yes in my book. Terrorists no, just college kids in the mountains for a week end. Would I report them again, yes.
This law worries me. Because it can be easily abused. Amazing how few people out there lack common sense on both sides of the lens.
