thought i posted this, but I just mentioned it at the end of a pic post... Some photo sites have mirrored the incident, but I wanted to put it here to let as many people know about the abuses against our constitution that are going on in the name of security. Everyone needs to know about the possibility of a growing police state and what it means to our rights as photographers. I too thought it was getting better for a little while, but I guess not. Thomas and I had some problems down there a week ago. Thomas Hawk's Digital Connection: Long Beach Harbor Patrol Says Photography "Not Allowed" From Public Sidewalk Thomas Hawk's Digital Connection: Port of Long Beach Responds to Incident of Photographer Harassment P.S. please don't bring politics into this, but feel free to criticize, praise, or talk about how our government is dealing with our rights and constitution in a peaceful way without putting down groups of people based on beliefs of any kind, if we all agree to that then we wont have any problems !! Thanks.
