Los Angeles Police Break Up a Photo Walk
Policemen thought a mass photo session was a riot.
On Saturday in Los Angeles, police mistakenly dispersed a group of photographers, who they thought to be aggressive protestors. According to Reddit, the photographers joined together for a photo walk. Because of the event's coverage in social networks, the number of participants rose from an expected 300 to almost 2,000 people. The group on the photowalk lit objects and started fireworks, which attracted police attention. Also, the group was accompanied by a mobile DJ and some of the participants were drinking alcohol.
