Photography is now Illegal in Long Beach

This story is making the rounds in the news/blog world, so fuck it – here it is if you haven’t heard about it already:

Police Chief Jim McDonnell has confirmed that detaining photographers for taking pictures “with no apparent esthetic (sp) value” is within Long Beach Police Department policy.

McDonnell spoke for a follow-up story on a June 30 incident in which Sander Roscoe Wolff, a Long Beach resident and regular contributor to Long Beach Post, was detained by Officer Asif Kahn for taking pictures of a North Long Beach refinery.

let me sum this up nicely:
There’s nothing at all of “apparent aesthetic value” to photograph in Long Beach. least of all Police Chief Jim McDonnell. You sir, can go fuck yourself.

Photography – anywhere at any time. is not illegal. it is not a ‘detain-able offense’, nor is it an excuse to waste civilians time with you’re police state ‘I’m so fucking paranoid about terrorists in LONG BEACH (because that’s such a huge target – are you fucking kidding me?)” bullshit. I hope the photographer sues for illegal detention and violation of basic civil rights.

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it until the day I die: The only way I’ll ever stop taking photos, and the only way anyone will get my camera is from my cold, dead hands.
