224. not arguing with you either
Abby... look, you know what I am talking about... we both agree. Heck, I agree that 60 feet is a long distance. On the other hand, circumstances dictate response. At night, a sole pedestrian, maybe they are already dealing with a felon (who knows?) and they ask the guy to go across the street.

My point is that I seriously doubt that the distance was 60 feet. First, let me remind you that he was ON THE SAME SIDE OF THE STREET and being told to GO to the other side when he responded with "this is a public street". This is by the OPs own account of the facts. Yet so many people are hanign onto that he was "60 feet and across the street" when he was told to go away.

Now I ask you to look at the picture. You've been to many crimes scenes. Look at the parked police vehicles. You know that is where the action was. And that area is where he was told to "go across the street". And by his own admission, he refused and was escorted to the middle of the street by an officer.

That officer told him to continue crossing. He apparently hesitated or again voiced his opinion of "it's a public street" or whatever he did. And it was at that point that they decided to arrest him. Now consider that they are still over by the police cars when they decide to arrest him. He knows he's in for it. So THEN he goes to the sidewalk as he says. But it's too late, they come across to his side of the street and make the arrest... while he is photographing them.

Again, I sincerely doubt 60 feet. If you draw a straight line from where he's taking those pictures and where the action is at, you'll probably find he was no more than a car length away from them... about 15 feet.
