ACLU: L.A. Sheriff's Deputies Harassed Photographers
October 31, 2011
The ACLU of Southern California has sued the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and several of its deputies, claiming they harassed, detained and improperly searched photographers taking pictures legally in public places.
The federal lawsuit alleges the Sheriff's Department and deputies "have repeatedly" subjected photographers "to detention, search and interrogation simply because they took pictures" from public streets of places such as Metro turnstiles, oil refineries or near a Long Beach courthouse, reports the Los Angeles Times.

"F" the ACLU. I wouldn't believe anything that comes out of their mouths. For the ACLU, the only good cop is a dead cop. I think it's in their by-laws. My guess is that 99.99% of the truth about the story is missing from the report.
