Charlotte, N.C. — Mennonite Church Canada volunteer videographer Steve Carter (20) had a run-in with the law today. On assignment to collect environmental footage of the downtown area for a church assembly video, Carter was approached by a security guard and a police officer and nicely but firmly told that “since 911” he could be charged for shooting video of buildings. Later, Carter reflected, “I wonder if it’s easier to shoot video in China.”
