You Can Now Photograph Government Buildings Without Being Shot

The next time you're hounded by the police after trying to snap yourself a pretty little photo of the White House, show them this printed-out document from the Homeland Security department, stating you're allowed to do so.

In fact, the document even says that "officers should not seize the camera or its contents, and must be cautious not to give such ‘orders' to a photographer to erase the contents of a camera, as this constitutes a seizure or detention."

The full document is enclosed below. Photographers, join me in my applause, won't you? [Lens via CrunchGear]
