Spain’s government is drafting a law that bans the photographing and filming of members of the police. The Interior Ministry assures they are not cracking down on freedom of expression, but protecting the lives of law enforcement officers.

The draft legislation follows waves of protests throughout the country against uncompromising austerity cuts to public healthcare and education.
The new Citizen Safety Law will prohibit “the capture, reproduction and editing of images, sounds or information of members of the security or armed forces in the line of duty,” said the director general of the police, Ignacio Cosido. He added that this new bill seeks to “find a balance between the protection of citizens’ rights and those of security forces.”

The dissemination of images and videos over social networks like Facebook will also be punishable under the legislation.

I remember the good old days, when 90+ year olds in nursing homes lived forever. Darn this pesky virus.

I assume that “the capture, reproduction and editing of images, sounds or information of members of the security or armed forces in the line of duty” will still be allowed to be carried out by CCTV cameras?

Or will this new legislation give the authorities the excuse to ban CCTV footage of police beating people up at demonstrations from being shown in future...

Well 'they' own the CCTV footage so i guess they will do whatever suits big brother at the time.

Actually they have already done this in australia from memory *i think*

I remember one time the police raided The Finks clubhouse (they are a so called outlaw motorcycle club, or OMC...bikers in other words)

anyway some of The Finks members were snapping photos of the cops to intimidate them i guess....then they outlawed it soon after from memory, photographing or filming police.
