Replying to comment by Barrett Chase on The night a cop tried to arrest me for doing street photography..

I think the next time I talk to a cop in a social setting, I think I’ll ask if they have a lot of experience with rapists and child molesters who first photograph their victims with infrared film. Somehow, I really doubt it.

I think these cases are a matter of the cop (not to mention the woman) really not understanding why anyone would photograph anything for artistic reasons, combined with a belief that everyone is guilty of something, akin to the jaded psychiatrist’s belief that everyone is crazy. That’s who they deal with.
