Photographer Arrested For Photographing

… if he was an accredited journalist, it’s guaranteed calls would have been made to editors and then the news org’s attorneys, and it would have never reached this stage. Sadly we live in a day and age where traditional media is dying on the vine and more and more people are going it alone to tell stories and assuming ever greater risk without the resources to defend themselves in situations like this…     -Banksy

That’s the heart and soul of the matter concerning Jonas Lara  who was photographing/documenting grafitti artists at work. Personally, I can only see him being convicted if they somehow prove that he was actively participating as a lookout- otherwise, they don’t have a leg to stand on. Unfortunately, the state of law (and justice) in this country has been one big lying joke going on a good decade now.

Gotta bust this guy too (big time)...
