Chicago Police Detain Reporters at Hospital

March 20, 2012  | 

A photographer and reporter were detained by Chicago police on Saturday as they tried to cover the shooting death of a 6-year-old girl. She was being treated at Mt. Sinai Hospital.

Hospital security officers called police, saying the members of the media tried to trespass into a secure area of the hospital, reports NBC Chicago. The news crew claimed that they didn't go into the facility. At the time of their arrest, they were standing on the median of a public sidewalk.

Both were released and not charged with any crime.

The media is disgusting. Its about time they learn to respect grieving family's. Sick people, going to far to get the news at all costs. Likely the reporters listed in the article (conveniently written by the same NBC) are lying about not saying anything.

Typical anti police slant to the story.

Headline: Police ARREST reporters.

Last sentence: Both were released and not charged.

Not charged = not arrested.
