Carlos Miller started Photography is Not a Crime in 2007 after he was arrested for taking photos of Miami police officers. Over the years, the blog turned into a national news site where they have writers, editors and researchers in several states. Since his initial arrest, he was arrested two more times for taking photos of police officers. He was cleared of all charges from all arrests, including a conviction he had reversed upon appeal that he did pro se from his first arrest. He has also published the Citizen Journalist’s Photography Handbook as a result of his site.
