Journalist attacked in Oakland…But Why?
Category : Blog
After reading Violent Oakland attacks jolt media – SFBay, I had to question… Why would someone attack a cameraman? I go and shoot (photos) all over the place and have done so for a long time. Many people have told me that I’m crazy for not carrying a gun, but I ignore their pleas. I have been to war torn countries and ghettoes around the world and coming from the ghetto I know one thing holds true. HAVE SOME RESPECT! I can’t pass a value judgement on the journalist who were attacked but I can say that I have definitely witnessed disrespectful reporting. Be cautious, be aware, but most of all respect the people who you are reporting on.
