Photos: Antiwar Protestors Piss Off Old Man

I wasn't out in front of the South Carolina Statehouse again for a another protest.

The antiwar protestors just happened to be nearby the confederate monument at the same time that I was set to meet up with former Governor Jim Hodges for a portrait shoot. The only shade in the area was directly on the east side of the monument, so I sat on the steps and joined a group of three kids escaping the sun. They had been dragged along and without their technology by one of their parents, who held a sign as cars drove by on Gervais St.

I sat down next to the youngest and he told me he liked robins. He liked humming birds too but the squirrels kept messing up the humming bird feeders at his house. He was not a bird enthusiast but he liked birds. One humming bird he saw had eggs the size of peas and a nest the size of a walnut. He didn't like peas but he liked green beans and he wa a HUGE enthusiast of Pokémon. When he proclaimed his love for Pokémon, his kid sister bursted out, "Do you even know the original 150!!!!?" He starts naming them and gets to 2 before she cut him off.

I don't know anything about Pokémon so the next five minutes they gave me some insights on the games until a man walked up the sidewalk and shouted at the protestors. "LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR!!!?" he screamed "THEY'RE CHOPPING OFF THE HEADS OF JOURNALISTS!!!" Every ten to fifteen feet he stopped pushing his walker, partially weighed down by shopping bags from Dollar General, and shouted some more.

"DANG! That was something?" I say as I look at the kids after the pissed off old man launched his final assault.

"That man needs to calm the fuck down," says one of the older kids. "And also, that's ISIS."
