New York: cops arrest reporter for reporting….what country is this?


From around the nation since 9/11, reports show that various police officers, almost always acting on their own interpretation of the law, have been seizing cameras from reporters and citizens, confiscating film, deleting photos, arresting those who video tape or photograph police  scenes, all in violation of the Constitution… the following is a special report from STATter911.com:

This was the end of a police chase and the Sgt. doesn’t want video coverage from a credentialed member of the press. The photog asks how far to
move back but the sgt. says no you can’t shoot it at all. Notice the road is open to traffic, there are people without a camera that are standing there and
even some kids walk straight through the scene. The photog moves a block away and shoots from the next street over and that’s when he’s arrested and charged
with Obstruction of Governmental Administration….how can you obstruct from a block away.

Germany
