Steve,The photographer used incredibly bad judgement in challenging the
police.  When confronted, just move on.  Good manners dictates that when the
police officer asked him to quit filming him that he stop.  If this was the
Tibetan riots then different rules apply; this guy was just filming stock
footage on the streets.  Starting up again in ten minutes would not have
changed his images.

The Ted Grant rules apply if you want a long healthy career in photography.
 Walk softly but carry a heavy M on a strap.
