There has been an interesting incident of a photographer getting arrested in Miami for photographing some police. Thomas Hawk has been following the event very closely. Here are direct links to Thomas’ posts in order:
- Dirty Cops Belong in Jail
- Carlos Miller Arrested for the Crime of Photography
- The “Other Side” of the Carlos Miller Arrest Story
- Another Update on the Carlos Miller Arrest Story
I’m linking to all these articles because I think this is a very important story for all photographers (Huge thanks to Thomas for all his work in tracking and keeping us all updated on this evolving story). There are a lot of sides to the moral behind this whole story and Thomas has a bunch of great links within these entries that I think every photographer should look through (warning: it might take you and half hour to follow all the discussions and past incidents…time well spent in my mind as it really gets you to think about the issues behind this).
Take the time and explore this story. Personally, I agree with Thomas whole-heartedly. What are your thoughts?
