The video would be more interesting if the photographers had the stones to do it in NORTH KOREA instead of essentially sticking their finger in the face of the security guard and shouting "I'm not touching you".

British police are really nice, as long as you are nice to them. There just needs to be mutual respect.
True. I've been stopped by the police numerous times. I used to go for walks in the middle of the night and a young man dressed in black wandering around a housing estate at 2 in the morning looks a bit suspicious to police cruising around to prevent crime, especially when he`s carrying a large bag. So they politely asked me what I was doing and I politely told them. No problem.
A copper once caught me breaking into a flat. I was subletting it at the time, so I had no proof I lived there. I`d left my keys at work and was trying to get in doing minimal damage. It was taking some time to take out a pane of glass and I realised someone was behind me. Turned round and there was a copper wanting to know what was going on. Fair enough. He was polite, I was polite, there wasn`t any hassle.

Those security guards were just making up such rubbish. "Terrorism act", Ha no! It's a double standard that Public can`t record Private but Private can record Publuc. By that I mean they can film us with their CCTV. I read a statistic that Londoners are caught on CCTV 300 times a day, even while doing something simple like going to Troc or Forbidden Planet. I`d rather have that than being beaten, tased, handcuffed, yelled at and possibly being shot at.
Even still there are the odd times when police brutality still occurs, like at the G8 summit. Generally the police are nothing like the ones in America though.
