Abstract Photography is not a crime. It’s protected First Amendment expression. But that hasn’t stopped deputies of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department from detaining and searching photographers, solely based on the fact they are taking pictures in public places, and ordering photographers not to take pictures on public streets and other public places where photography is not prohibited. But these searches and detentions the violate both the First Amendment right to photograph, and the Fourth Amendment right to be free on unlawful searches and detentions.
