• What are my rights?

    A few years back when I originally got into all this protesting and whatnot, I was with my companion at the time and we decided to make cardboard signs and write on them, KFC TORTURES! Meat is MURDER! Things along those lines, with no profanity or crude images, of course. The KFC happened to be on a crossroads/street corner (which I thought was awesome for getting people to notice us). Anyway, the manager of the KFC ends up coming out to us and asks, what in the hell we are doing. We explain our peaceful protest and he tells us that we have to leave the area, even though it is a public sidewalk and we aren’t on the buildings perimeter but simply outside it. He then proceeds to take my PICTURE! WITHOUT my consent. I told him, he needs to delete that or else I’ll be taking actions of my own [police]. The KFC manager ends up calling the police on my mate and I and we are asked to polietly leave, because apparently we are kids with nothing better to do.

    What I am asking is, if this manager does this again, with my photo and the cops, what are my rights? I’m not worried about being arrested and I’m 20 now instead of 17 so I can hold myself a little better. What are your ideas/thoughts?
