Thrown off a train for taking photos

No, not me. I don’t take trains much any more. Anyway, I can’t imagine that much paranoia in Australia yet. The incident happened in America (where else?) and is reported here. Basically, a Japanese tourist with very little English language skills was asked by a train conductor not to take photos of the countryside for national security reasons (!??!). At the next stop, she got the cops to throw him off the train.

It’s a long-ish, but interesting article that deserves more publicity and more outrage. What the hell is so important to national security that you can see it out the window of a train, but can’t take photos of it?
