Don't Post Facebook Pics Of Police Cars In Spain

If you post a photo of an illegally parked police car in Spain, you can be promptly fined for your impertinence. Huh?
The Citizens Security Law, popularly known as the gagging law and which came into force on 1 July, prohibits “the unauthorised use of images of police officers that might jeopardise their or their family’s safety or that of protected facilities or police operations”.
Amnesty International condemned the law, saying that photographing police was vital in cases when excessive force had been used. Fines under this section of the law range from €600 to €30,000.
