Of all days to chase and arrest journalists and to block the media’s view with fire trucks.
MLK Day, 2017.
Of all places to shut down civil disobedience on MLK Day.
Independent journalist Rachel Gay of Hive Swarm News & Media was covering an environmental protest when police arrested her and chased her associate Aaron Murphy about a third of a mile, across a railroad track and into some bushes where he hid with his equipment for about an hour until things cooled down. Police also arrested a citizen observer as he live-streamed on Facebook.
