Show Your Patriotism

|

In London, England, the Metropolitan Police department has apologized and paid an undisclosed compensation to a teenager stopped from photographing the annual Armed Forces Day Parade in 2010. Several officers confronted Jules Mattson, then 15, and told him it was illegal to shoot the parade. When he protested, one of them told him that taking photographs of the patriotic parade was "silly," "gay" and "stupid."
