I am all for people earning a living. However, when a photographer admits he is witness to a domestic incident that is ongoing in public for 27 minutes and all he opts to do is take a series of photos, I oblige myself to feel a certain amount of disgust. It wasn’t like “Jean-Paul” took one or two to document it and then put down the camera to separate them. No, he saw his “money shot” and went after it with all the fervor of a starving and rabid pit bull.
While I am far from a celebrity, this hit too close to home for me. I have a little too much experience with this in the past, and it hurts to repeatedly hear stories that people still continue to allow this to happen. So to clarify for those of you who are having some difficulty with this, if someone is being assaulted in public, leave your camera out of the picture and call the police.
