Spot news photo

I was finishing working on a photo assignment downtown when I saw some heavy black smoke close to my location, so I couldn't resist driving over to take a look at this fire at a commercial building in East L.A. The fire was raging when I got there a few minutes later. I didn't even have to flash my press credential because I arrived before the police set up road blocks and police lines... I love it when that happens! Firefighters are always very cool about access , but more and more the police tend to be difficult about access at breaking news situations. I really noticed a change since 9-11. The LAPD changed their policy and make it much more difficult to get a coveted LAPD press pass. Sign of the times I guess.

Can you tell which is the human and which is his twin robotic android??
