Thomas Hawk Shoots a Fake Cop

I Was Assaulted By This Man Who Identified Himself as a Police Officer and Refused to Provide Me Identification, Photography is Not a Crime

Photographing architecture is not a crime. Impersonating a police officer is. Yesterday my friend Thomas Hawk and a couple of other photographers who were out on a architectural photo shoot in San Francisco and had a bizarre run-in at 45 Fremont Street with a guy pretending to be a cop, who then ended up assulting Thomas. The fake cop refused to provide any form of identification. Here’s the full story.

Give ’em hell Thomas!
