So said a se­nior Bei­jing res­i­dent sur­named Tian who is a photography en­thu­si­ast and of­ten takes pho­tos in parks. On July 22, he was tak­ing pho­tos with his wife in the Olympic For­est Park when an ar­gu­ment at­tracted his at­ten­tion. While he was try­ing to fig­ure out what was go­ing on, a man sud­denly grabbed his bag of photography equip­ment and ran away. Tian shouted at the man and ran af­ter him with his wife. A “kind-hearted” by­stander pointed them in the di­rec­tion of the theif. Un­for­tu­nately, Tian lost him and then called the po­lice. Tian be­lieves that these peo­ple work to­gether to steal from peo­ple. The po­lice said that it was not the first time photography equip­ment had been stolen from vis­i­tors in the park, and they re­minded vis­i­tors to be care­ful when tak­ing pho­tos in pub­lic.
