In general, I don’t do cartwheels when I hear about lawsuits. But this one makes me happy. A TV photographer in New Jersey has filed a lawsuit against a police officer who arrested him while the photographer was filming a peaceful demonstration. Apparently the only thing violent about this demonstration was the officer’s clash with the photographer.
This video shows the original event. Can you say “settle now.”
Dear Police of America: Stop violating the constitutional rights of journalists. We are journalists and we will get really good evidence.
