Los Angeles vs. Photographers

Freelance photographer Shawn Nee has been shooting the sights of Los Angeles for years, but he has also been repeatedly detained for doing his job. He has never been charged with a crime. In the latest incident, police took Nee to the police station after he photographed them from 90 feet away. Nee’s case is just one example of the tense relationship between some L.A cops and photographers.
