Woman Charged After Beating Up Teen for Flying Drone on the Beach
3 months ago

Here's another example of an authoritarian moron who doesn't like photography, and who will go to violent extremes to make it stop. First she tried to use the police to harass the photographer on Hammonasset Beach in Connecticut (U.S.), and when that didn't work immediately, she used physical aggression against the photographer. Was she upset about CCTV cameras? Nope. Traffic cameras that catch drivers who ignore red lights? Nope. Spy satellites circling overhead? Nope. Andrea Mears was upset about a teenager with a small drone, who was taking wide-angle videos of the landscape. Fortunately, the photographer was recording the incident on his phone, which has now become evidence against her. I hope that the photographer will see her prosecuted successfully, and will also be able to remove the large spot from his iPhone's field-of-view.
