Boston Scared By Street Photographers

Photo by Joe Gallo

Boston’s local CBS station did a report on some “strange” behavior that’s raising a lot of “red flags” — a bunch of men taking “unusual” photos of people in the streets of Downtown Crossing. Luckily they sent a reporter to get to the bottom of it. And guess what? They’re street perverts photographers.  

All the passersby are freaked out — these men are targeting women’s body parts and children!

“Those guys are out here every single day, following people up and down the street, nonchalantly taking pictures of women’s body parts,” said Craig Caplan, who owns three kiosks selling various items not far from where these men hang out.

And doing it so nonchalantly! In broad daylight, whole packs of them, for something called art. It’s sickening.

One of the photographers responds here and debunks the whole piece. He writes:

…a real predator would not have engaged the media to begin with. If we were truly part of a group that “aggressively hunts down women and children” we wouldn’t go to the same place almost daily. This is How-often-do-you-beat-your-wife? Journalism.

In all, we talked to [CBS’s] Jim and Ron for a good half hour and, after we relaxed, we supplied them with what I thought to be good copy. I spoke of “self censorship,” that we don’t take pictures of children and that we don’t hunt down women for their body parts… 

Both men engaged us in a friendly manner and we ended our conversation with a firm handshake. We even invited them to an upcoming photography show—with or without their cameras.

    Looking forward to joining this group and being attacked by the press and the public for doing an activity that is protected by the 1st Amendment. But I’m not looking forward to my felony charge for recording cops in public with my Vievu. MA wiretapping laws are bullshit and must be fixed.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to
    be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to
    get the hang of it!
