After this picture, the handcuffed folks complained that I was taking their picture, and this cop got all in my face saying I couldn't take pictures anymore and to beat my feet. He was dead wrong and either does not understand photgrapher's rights or was just being a bully. I take pictures of people being arrested not to be dick but to make sure the cops treat them decently. I have seen pigs treat people like shit and whoop their ass when they think no one is watching, but if they see a camera, they become extremely polite. I am doing this not to identify people who may or may not be guilty of petty crimes, but to protect them from police abuse. As long as a photographer is not getting in the way of a criminal investigation, which you can see that I wasn't as they were just relaxing after busting these two, perhaps waiting for the paddy wagon, I have every right to film anything. Of course, for my own safety, when any cop tells me to do anything, I don't argue, I just comply, as I have got my ass beat good by the S.F.P.D. for nothing on a number of occasions. I don't respect the S.F.P.D., I fear them, for a damn good reason, they are bullies and will use excessive force for little or no reason, which is why I was filming this. Dumb ass pigs. His commanding officer needs to have a little chit chat with him about what he can and cannot tell people to photograph. I take lots of pictures of cops, for the sole reason that they are a brutal gang, capable of murder and mayhem and need to be kept in check and my weapon, a very useful one is my camera.
