Photographers are no longer safe..
I have a serious problem relating to photography and my rights. I'd like your help with this if you know what to do, or have experienced something like it. So...Recently I was sitting in my car waitng for my wife at a local supermarket. Bored with waiting, I got out my Nikon DSLR . My wife, by the way is VERY camera shy, so in order to get an image without her hand in her face, I must sneak candid shots of her. Anyway, my wife was coming so as she approached I snapped several shots of her. Some other store patron saw me do this, and snapped a photo of my license plate and posted it on facebook saying I was a creep shooting little girls (my wife is 58 and hardly a little girl) They don't mention I offered freely to show my memory card to the policeman who came to investigate. But now Facebook won't do anything to help take down the damaging post. I feel threatened. That some nut may try to hurt me. I did nothing wrong but have my camera out at the wrong time. When then, is the right time? Facebook states you cannot post plates, but don't seem to care if you do. What can I do?
