Here’s Lisa Derrick’s update, which I didn’t notice before I posted here:
She asks: and I wonder:
The LAPD Media Relations Department declined to tell me who was in the media pool, saying it was not for publication. Someone had called earlier and had been given the names and told the POI officer that they would not guarantee non-publication, so the officer was very wary. Why doesn’t the LAPD want that information released?
These are public demonstrations, public streets, public park..is it actually lawful to restrict access to reporters?
And we thought we were free.
