A California lawmaker wants to make it a crime for law enforcement officers and other personnel to take unauthorized photos at crime scenes and crash sites.

The proposal by Assemblyman Mike A. Gipson, Assembly Bill 2655, comes about two months after claims surfaced that some Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies shared graphic images from the wreckage of the helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant, his daughter and seven others in Calabasas.
