The news is out: [Video showing multiple sheriff’s deputies in Los Angeles pinning a journalist covering a protest to the ground and arresting her has drawn condemnation from journalists across social media.
In a recording obtained by local news outlet ABC7, several deputies are seen pinning reporter Josie Huang, who writes for LAist and reports for NPR affiliate KPCC, to the pavement before bringing her to her feet and leading her away to a squad car.
Protests have continued for weeks in Los Angeles over the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wis., and the deaths of other Black Americans during encounters with police. A Black man was also shot and killed by deputies with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department several weeks ago, causing protests to swell in size and intensity.]
Cops want respect, yet show none for the Constitution or the people.
