Meanwhile in the Democrat hellhole of San Francisco…
Armed robbers targeted two separate photographers at Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco this week.
One photographer traveled to San Francisco to take engagement photos for a couple.
Masked armed robbers approached him and tried to steal his equipment but he successfully wrestled the camera bag out of the thief’s hands.
“I was just freaked out. I tried to protect the client’s memories. The bride was crying the whole time,” the photographer told ABC 7 News.
The photog from Dallas told ABC 7 that he will never shoot photos at the Palace of Fine Arts and encouraged others to never book photoshoots there.
Earlier that day a separate photographer was robbed of his gear at gunpoint.

I spoke to a photog f/Dallas, who flew in for an engagement shoot 10/9. He told me he was pistol-whipped but wrestled his cam back b/c he wanted to save his client’s pics. pic.twitter.com/RTPtFl7tYl

ABC 7 News reported:
Two photographers, shooting outside the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco became the targets of brazen armed attacks.
A photographer from Dallas, who requested anonymity for his safety, says he flew into San Francisco for the day to take engagement photos for a couple the afternoon of Nov. 9.
A witness took video, which shows how suddenly, two masked and armed men approach. The photographer, who is a new father not thinking about potential consequences, successfully wrestled the camera bag out of the suspects’ hands. He spoke exclusively to ABC7 News and described the harrowing experience over the phone and added later that he was also pistol-whipped at the time of the incident.
A bit earlier in the day, a photographer from the Bay Area witnessed another photographer being robbed at gunpoint outside the Palace of Fine Arts. In the video he recorded, you can see a suspect run away with a gear bag.
Both incidents were reported to SFPD but our request for additional details has not yet been addressed.
