No Cruising, 1998

"This photo was taken at a gas station in Montebello on a Sunday night. Sunday nights in the summer time were cruise nights on Whittier Boulevard, which is about a mile south of this photo. The police started pulling over everybody and harassed them to discourage the cruising.  Some of the cops had their guns drawn on the occupants of the low riders as one cop yelled into his speaker that I was in the line of fire."
