“Surveiling marchers–and this was a strikingly peaceful, calm event–can have a real chilling effect.”

“Dear PoPville,

I joined the march from Friendship Heights to the National Cathedral in Tenleytown yesterday. As the column swung into the Cathedral grounds, I saw a police SUV, with a uniformed officer pointing a camera with telephoto lense at the march (he was pretty far away). I pointed it out to my wife and tried to cover my face more than it already was, but, unfortunately, didn’t take any pictures. I wonder if anyone else noticed a uniformed officer with a camera at this or other protests. It’d be interesting to know whether that was a cop. If he was law enforcement (or private security), it seems important to know what he was photographing and for what purpose. Surveiling marchers–and this was a strikingly peaceful, calm event–can have a real chilling effect.
