Ethics and legalities with photographing riots?

2 months 2 days ago #687392 by KENT MELTON
OP - honestly I would support the protest, and leave my big camera home.  But I have a hard line that I won't step over.  I acknowledge the cop should go to prison.  But as a white person, I don't treat a person of color different than I do a white person.  So I'm not going to kiss no ones ass because of my skin color.  Because of that, more reason to keep my better camera home.

To be honest, I've not seen any photographers attacked by either protesters or rioters. Why would they? They want the message to get out and photographers help them do that.

I've seen a few on the receiving end of violence from the police though, accidentally or otherwise, and the obvious risks of people in a large group during covid still remain. But if you're going to go anyway, I don't see any particular risk of bringing an expensive camera.

Hmmm, no ethics in what that cop did, or how the media is blowing this up.  I have no interest in any of this.
