Justified ARREST, OR POLICE OVERSTEPPING THEIR POWERS? YOUR THOUGHTS?
Bodycam footage shows Denver police officers handcuffing and detaining The Colorado Independent’s editor, Susan Greene, for taking photos on a public sidewalk.
A Colorado prosecutor will not file charges against the police officers who handcuffed a Denver journalist after she took photographs of several officers standing around a naked, handcuffed man seated on a downtown sidewalk.
A spokesman for Denver District Attorney Beth McCann says there was not enough evidence to file and prove criminal charges.
Greene, the editor of The Colorado Independent, reported on July 5 that she took the photos from a public sidewalk. Greene said an officer told her to stop, then handcuffed her and put her inside a patrol car.
