Nope, that's not what it means at all. If you're attempting to do something that means you are in the act of doing it, not having problems. What incentive would she have for being arrested or injured by defying a police order? Doing so would automatically end her coverage, which is what she is tasked with doing. Breaking the law, could most certainly end their careers. Why would she do this? lol.

You have no legal entitlement to a phone call from jail. It doesn't matter how many times you've seen this in a movie or tv show.

That's ridiculous. Of course you have the right to contact somebody after being arrested. I could imagine the lawsuit against a police department that would hold you indefinitely or until your court date. Correct, it is a Hollywood standard in jail scenes to get one phone call.

It’s actually a Hollywood myth that you get that one and only one phone call after arrest. People often imagine that if the first person they call doesn’t pick up, they’re out of luck. You actually get up to three calls.


CNN would never fire her for creating a scene, nor hurt her career. That's how they attract their audience. In fact it seems to me she did want to get arrested. If she was told to leave, she wasn't going to get anymore coverage anyway. The police tell you to disperse and you turn around and head away from the riot. She didn't which is why the arresting officer asked her if she spoke English.

Answer this honestly. When was the last time you've seen any legitimate producer/reporter create a scene in order to be intentonally arrested, and then was no longer able to report on the event she was supposed to cover? Reporters report the news, they don't become it. That's a basic tenet of their job. The cop asked if she spoke english after she had repeatedly told him she was with the media and even after she had told him her cuffs were too tight. Why make excuses for police brutality and possibly racism, unless you welcome a police state? We know police do this all the time. We see it all the time. Doesn't matter if it's just a protestor standing still holding a sign, an elderly man who isn't moving fast enough, or reporters covering protests from the sidelines. They will arrest and assault anyone nearby regardless of whether they're actually breaking any laws and gather them up for arrest. God help the ppl who are too poor for bail, for doing nothing, but excercising their rights. This is tactic the police employ at every left wing protest. Conversely, when have you ever seen a reporter with a real news agency attack a cop so they can get arrested? lol. :laugh: :laugh:

Police only arrest people they have to. Do you know what an officer has to do after an arrest? He needs to transport the prisoner to jail. He needs to interview the suspect. He needs to write out a report, he needs to attend court to testify in case the judge has any questions at his or her hearing. Why would an officer do go through all that work if he didn't need to?

The officer asked if she spoke English after hearing her speak English because she obviously wasn't listening to his orders, not because of her ethnicity. Plus this was her claim and we have no evidence of it, just like we have no evidence she was trying to comply with their orders. If you are not complying with orders, being a reporter or producer is not a get out of jail free card. You do what they tell you to do and then try to speak to somebody about your situation. Plus again, I don't know why a major cable television would send out a producer instead of a reporter. That alone sounds pretty suspect to me.

I never said she tried to attack the cop, I said she obviously wasn't complying with orders. It's CNN, right? If she was violated, why don't they have a copy of the body cam the officer was wearing? If they don't have it yet, or are not going to try and get it, they are doing so for a reason.

According to my source, not allowing communications with people outside of the jail is a constitutional violation of the 14th Amendment that gives every citizen the right of due process which communication is part of.

No. Everything you just said there is simply a story you cooked up in your own head to justify police brutality. The police haven't contradicted a thing she said because they don't need to, because they can do what they want.

Peaceful protestors are scooped up all the time during protests. It's part of the tactics they use. During the floyd protests federal agents would drag random peaceful protestors into vans or cars and drive off with them without actually arresting them. You see this year after year but usually with the cops doing something similar. Asking why they would do that is a question for the police. I'm guessing it's sort of like a terror or intidimation tactic to make ppl afraid to protest. All i'm doing is enlightening you on the facts.

California has laws allowing you to make a phone call, but this is not a given in every state. It's not a legal right in the United States. It depends on the state you've been arrested in.


20 media outlets are filing lawsuits against the minnessota police department for assaulting their reporters. This is nothing new. A photo journalist was blinded in one eye with a rubber bullet. I guess she was somehow not "complying" and deserved being shot in the eye.

As my reliable source points out not allowing a suspect to contact people outside of the jail is a violation of due process. After all, that's what cops do after they arrest you, they process you.

If police can do what they want then why can't CNN? CNN could hound them for the video, for a response to the allegation, file a complaint with the ACLU. They did none of these things. An unproven claim was made and you just expect me to believe it. If there were any merit to this claim, CNN would be pursuing it aggressively.

That's likely the case. You can get anybody to file a lawsuit. It's if it's ruled legitimate is what proves anything.
