I've had the same thing happen to me while taking photos in a public space.
I was riding around my neighborhood looking for a good photo of whatever and noticed the police, I didn't even take any pictures, I was just using my
telephoto to see if I could figure out what was going on. One noticed me and started running over, I hadn't done anything wrong so I just stood there
figuring he was coming to ask if I had seen something. But no, he runs over, rips me off my bike and throws me to the ground before even asking who I
was then demanded that I delete my photos (even though I hadn't taken any).
It's instances like that why I despise most police officers, you give me a chance to cooperate and not act like a pretentious douchebag to me and I
will more than likely cooperate peacefully. You run up, slam me to the ground and cuff me for absolutely no reason and you just perpetuate the
I hope things work out for the kid, no reason he should get that kind of attention from anyone for simply taking a photo.
