Replying to comment by Rob Hurlbut on Is Street Photography Actually That Dangerous?.

Rob Hurlbut

Most of the time, it seems to be photographers dealing with law enforcement people. In 2009 I filmed some San Diego Trolley guards arresting a guy for smoking. The guards told me I was not allowed to film them, but I did anyway, posted it on YouTube & it made the news. My blog post with the video can be seen here: http://www.theworldisraw.com/san-diego-trolley-police-prohibit-photography/
That situation lead me to find a site run by Carlos Miller that has documented HUNDREDS of instances of people engaging in photography in public, being arrested & assaulted, mostly by police. His site is: http://www.pixiq.com/contributors/248
