The people involved is the 12-year old named Hilde Lysiak. The police officer in Arizona.
After a while Hilde was filming, and Patterson told her that she could tape him but if she puts his face on the internet that is against the law in Arizona.
It does not say where the event occurred. But it says when the article was written which was on 03/05/2019. I am pretty sure it occurred in Arizona
The location of this event is in Arizona. Also the photo they took of Hilde takes place in her home state of Pennsylvania.
I think the author's purpose for reporting about this event is that not all States are allowed to do different things.
I reacted surprised. I say this because i guess in Arizona it’s illegal to be fuming or stuff like that. The lesson that i learned is that not every state has the same things and stuff can be different.
