Meet Scott Jones and his girlfriend, Alex Thomas. As the story goes, Alex had been knocked to the ground by the riot police. The situation was far from romantic. Alex recalls being, 'completely freaked out.' To calm her down, Scott ran to Alex's aid and covered Alex to protect her. Then, in the heat of the moment, he kissed her. AP photographer Richard Lam snapped two photos of the couple as he was being ushered away by the police... and the rest is history.
