Amy Stein posted this funny video from The Colbert Report about the arrest of a man taking photographs in Penn Station on the Amtrak platform. It turns out that the man, Duane Kerzic, was arrested for trespassing after admitting to taking photos of “shiny” Amtrak trains for a photo competition that was being held by Amtrak.

I’ve always thought that a ban on photography in “high risk” places was a very ineffective way of combating terrorism and this is clear proof that it is.

The Comedy Central video is below.
