Reporter arrested for taking pictures in public

So here's the story. Some guy's mentally ill, naked(or nearly so), and the cops are trying to handle the situation. Lady reporter walks up and starts taking pictures and they tell her to stop taking pictures and leave. She refuses, they arrest her...

Personally I say the cops f*cked up and she should sue the department. What do you guys think?

Just going off the OP and not the link, the cops asked her to leave and stop snapping pics, so she would have presumably been allowed to keep the ones she had already taken. If the story was nothing more than, 'Mentally Ill Man Arrested In The Nude', then she probably should have just left. If she stood there gawking and smiling and reveling in her 'big break' then she likely wasn't helping the situation. Cops should probably just put her in the back of a car until the situation was dealt with and let her go.

If she was there to ensure the mentally ill man suffered no harm at the hands of the police then that may be a different story.

I agree she should have left. I think the cops were also wrong, but the thing to do would be to leave and then report the cops.

See I gotta disagree with you guys. The supreme court has already made it clear that no one has a reasonable expectation to privacy in public. This especially holds true for cops. I think she absolutely did the right thing because her arrest makes it more of an issue. If she complained they prob just would have just told her something like "Yeah our guys were in the wrong, they know not to do that anymore". But winning a lawsuit actually sends a message to cops everywhere and lets more people know about just how far their rights extend.

She'll be cleared and the cops have some trouble on their hands, now.

She would have still had the cops on video telling her to leave tho...

It's still better to demonstrate just how far outside the lines they were willing to operate.

More and more are doing so supposedly, I don't know if legislation was passed for this or not and I don't know if the money is there to roll this out nationwide but I think it's a good idea, as long as it's used in the right way. Who would be in charge of reviewing the footage of an officers d2d activities in the event of a lawsuit against the police. A review board of some sort would have to be set up I suppose but it would have to be completely autonomous and independent of the police, unlike the IPCC.

I know we are in the UK I think the yanks should follow suit. They have far more issues than us as a nation.

I thought those buildings looked familiar. That's in front of the Colorado State Capitol building on Colfax Avenue in Denver. I'm going to try and catch George Thorogood playing at the nearby park there tomorrow.

The cops are in the wrong. Like **** the Freedom of the Press doesn't supercede HIPAA's privacy law regarding something occurring in public. I'm pretty sure HIPAA only deals with the unlawful disclosure of one's medical records.

Sounds like they were in the wrong, but I'm also pretty sure the press freedoms aren't absolute. Not 100% sure where the lines are..

If her presences/pictures were agitating the guy, and posed a safety issue, the maybe?

She was taking pictures of a man apparently in some kind of pain or distress from several yards away on one of Denver's major streets. I can't think of any law she may have broken, or any way she'd complicated the situation. The police threw out some bullshit about the First Amendment not superseding HIPPA's privacy law, yet she probably had none of the man's personal or medical information. Even if she did, she could report the story without identifying him, and avoid breaking any laws.

The dude was naked? And she was smiling with taking the pictures?


What a perverted woman. She might be the mentally ill one, tbh.
