Police were arresting OccupyMN protesters when an officer shoved a KSTP news cameraman, knocking the camera off his shoulder. A bystander captured the incident on video. The station's management team wants to know why a member of the press was prevented from doing his job, and the news director has requested a meeting with Minneapolis Police Chief Tim Dolan.
City Pages has the story.
Dolan on Monday defended officers' decision to remove tents from Peavey Plaza in downtown Minneapolis but added he was concerned about the cameraman's tangle with an officer and that the department is investigating, the Star Tribune reports.
