Marion, IL – Photography activists were recently arrested for filming in public. Calling themselves Southern Illinois Public Observers were originally told they were free to leave but then the unidentified law enforcement officer blocked their egress.

After they were impeded, their identification was demanded. They were told they were “temporarily” detained. They responded by saying they wanted to know for what crime they were being detained, yet none of the officers could “articulate” what crime for which they were being detained.

Another officer chimed in and said, “You do realize that if someone comes out here and says that you’re alarming them by filming them you can be charged with disorderly conduct?”

Then, what appears to be an FBI agent says that, “I am telling you, officer, and I am telling them that I feel alarmed that they are filming my building without identifying who they are. I have concern for the building and the residents of that building.”

An activist chimed in and said, “You have no reasonable expectation of privacy,” he stated indicating that by being in public and interacting with the activists, he cannot claim to be conducting official FBI business which their filming activities would impede, according to the law.

Later, a sergeant with the police force arrived and said “we have a victim of disorderly conduct. Someone at the FBI office is disturbed day your behaviors. So at this point, you’re being arrested.”
