Demonstrator with rifle on Sandhill taking photos of cars
Original post made by Concerned, Old Palo Alto, on Jun 20, 2012
This afternoon, I was heading East on Sandhill just off 280 and noticed a strange man at the corner where the Rosewood Hotel is with a rifle across his back, taking photos of each car passing by with a long lens.
I called the non-emergency police number to report him. They were aware and had sent officers to check on the situation earlier. Apparently, the weapon is not loaded and he has Constitutional rights to both carry the weapon and take the pictures of the cars.
He had signs up but I was focussed on safely moving past that area so couldn't see what they said.
Anyone have more info and how long he intends to be there?
