I have been a steelworker for more than 15 years, so I can say I paid my fair share of state taxes.

I'm also a photographer, so I'm setting up to shoot some photos of a friend and the park director says I have to pay to shoot photos there. My tax returns for the past 20 years say I already did.

I was not obstructing anyone. There was not an event going on, and I was outside the building.

A lot of state money went in to fixing up that place, and you mean to tell me I can't shoot photos outside?
