Police have a right to only seize evidence of a crime, nothing else. If you take a photo at an accident or crime scene they can only seize what they know about. If they seize one photo, it doesn't make it illegal to take additional photos. It's not that the photos that they seize were illegally taken, they are not, they are merely seized as evidence in a court proceeding.
Several of us truly believe someone is trying to intimidate people on this site of coming through with this photo, or, the photo doesn't exist and never has existed...
When this topic first arose on this site, many claimed that the photo appeared in "several" newspapers in Oregon, yet nobody produced one copy....If the photo was in newspapers then why aren't those newspapers breaking the law???If the photo was printed in a newspaper, where is the photo or copy of the paper??? Where is an article about this creature that was written in a paper????????
Again, if someone has a photo, get to an reputable attorney, preferably an ACLU related attorney and ask them to release it, guaranteed that they will release it and they will protect you.
It's looking more and more like there is some force at work on this site that doesn't want this photo released.
