UK man questioned by police after cell phone photo of daughter in mall.
Last Friday, 45-year-old Chris White was at the Braehead shopping center near Glasgow,  when he took a snapshot of his daughter Hazel eating some ice cream. He  was then confronted by security guards — and later the police — who  cited the Prevention of Terrorism Act  to explain that it was in their rights to confiscate his phone. While  they did allow him to keep the photos, they demanded his personal  details. Afterward, White created a Facebook page titled “Boycott Braehead” in an effort to draw attention to the incident.
