16. are you missunderstanding?
in the article it states: Sir, I will confiscate that camera if you dont put it away.

So the conductor asked the person to stop and put away the camera... if they had asked if there was a policy that prohibits ANY photography, I bet they would have informed the person that there is in strict policy. I bet it is even posted at EVERY train station.

If the person put away there camera, I bet nothing would have happened.

As a photographer, I have been "hauled out" of events I was not supposed to shoot at... like music concerts. I knew going in I was not supposed to be photographing the event but chose to anyway... when I was thrown out, I didn't accuse the security as being "Communists".
