This is an old video from 2009 that was taken down by YouTube because the guard complained that his privacy was violated. But it’s finally back on line, two years later, where it belongs since we all know that an expectation of privacy does not exist on a public sidewalk.
If any photographers are still being harassed by downtown Los Angeles security guards please document the encounter with video and let us know.
A downtown Los Angeles security guard tells a photographer that he can’t photograph The Gas Company Tower from a public sidewalk without the property owner’s permission. The photographer informs the guard that that is not true.
