Photography is not a crime. Sucker punching a man and beating him while on the ground is. This lesson was learned by three individuals in San Francisco recently after attacking photographer Peter Muller. Muller had taken a couple of photos of an accident that had occurred to send to a friend over Snapchat who was out of town.
Muller says the accident was due to a taxi driver falling asleep at the wheel. He drove into the sidewalk, “obliterated the news stand”, continued into a shoeshine shop, critically injuring two people. Muller had been photographing the aftermath of accident when the trio confronted him.
