Yet a further example of the current low status from which photographers suffer in U.S. society—the absurd charges against Jonas Lara are apparently not going to go away, and he has been forced to set up a legal defense fund. The L.A. police are evidently determined to make an "example" out of him.
I hope at least Banksy and Shepard Fairey will contribute to the fund....
Our advice: be sure not to photograph anyone jaywalking. You could be detained for aiding and abetting.
