Stephen Colbert Nails Amtrak

The Amtrack Police arrested a photographer who was shooting photos for the Amtrak Photography Contest!

While this of itself is funny what's not funny is that fact that police departments across the country have used the "9/11 Excuse" to harass and arrest photographers who are not violating any rules. Recently New York City paid a $31,000+ settlement to a photographer taking photos of the a subway.
