On the 12th December 2015, I decided to shoot a funny video featuring some members of Norfolk Constabulary (embedded below) whilst on a privately owned road, namely Wherry Road in Norwich, Norfolk, UK. I was then assaulted by a private security guard after I lawfully refused to desist filming.

Whilst I was on private property, I was still in a public place. The land was not owned by his employer and there were no signs demarcating any prohibition against filming.

Two constables standing close by looked at me whilst this happened and ignored the person as they did not care less. After I threatened to punch the guy and he laughed. PC 1169 Hogan barked an order, namely “stop making a nuisance of yourself.” Hogan then said that “If you’ll be reasonable to me, I’ll be reasonable to you. If you’ll be a freeman on the land, I’ll be a freeman on the land to.”

I then left.
