Popular Vlogger Kicked Out of VidCon for … Video Recording

A man entering a conference for online video creators was ordered to turn his camera off or be thrown out by security guards

George Hemminger opted to leave the conference once the man named Brent, who described himself as a “staffer,” got on the phone to security.

The incident took place Thursday at VidCon in the Anaheim Convention Center, which in its third year, describes itself [__“as the world’s premier gathering of people who make online video.”__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/www.vidcon.com)

A further description of the conference which started Thursday and ends tomorrow:

> VidCon is for people who love online video. Independent creators, enablers, viewers and supporters of all kinds. The ways that we entertain, educate, share, and communicate are being revolutionized. The creators attending and on stage at VidCon are central to that revolution. The best part is, we’re having the time of our lives doing it.

Hemminger fits that description perfectly considering he operates a couple of popular [__Youtube__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/george4vlogging?feature=watch) [__channels__](http://www.youtube.com/user/george4title) where he regularly discusses life in Los Angeles, world economics, frugal living and just current events in general.

He did not have a ticket to the sold-out conference, but he was standing outside the conference in the lobby when he was confronted.

He was allowed to stand there without a ticket, just not allowed to video record, which begs the question, just how much authority does Brent have outside the conference within a city-owned convention center?

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
