Protesting for the right to take photos at Metrorail

There is a protest on Sunday, August 8 regarding Carlos Miller, who was "attacked" last week by a security guard at the Douglas Road Metrorail Station for taking photos. According to Carlos, they have "routinely harassed, threatened, denied entrance and in at least one case, assaulted photographers for daring to pull out a camera while inside or attempting to enter a Metrorail station."

I know that in this age of terrorist threats, it could be a confusing issue, but I have taken many photos in the last few years down it the New York subways without incident, so if that is the case, what is the deal here in Miami?


Carlos says that the law "specifically states that citizens are allowed to take photos or shoot video for personal or journalistic purposes without a permit." Permits are needed for advertising or tv shoots.

If you are so inclined, and we might be, show up at the Douglas Station (at Douglas and S. Dixie) with a camera at 1 pm this Sunday.

First the Metrorail hired a security company that was charging the county for non-existent security work and now they have thugs attacking citizens?
