ABC was actually truely sincere and hardhitting for once.
NBC most likely will do up a slew of fluff pieces now that
Meet the Press's Tim Russert has totally left the building!

During the arrest, one of the officers can be heard saying to Eslocker, "You're lucky I didn't knock the f..k out of you."

Wow, cop.

The link doesn't work for me either. Maybe they pulled it?

There was a comment there I liked:

"Change we can believe in" is beginning to sound like the Twight Zone episode "TO SERVE MAN". It would make a clever bumper sticker

ABC Reporter Arrested in Denver Taking Pictures of Senators, Big Donors

Asa Eslocker Was Investigating the Role of Lobbyists and Top Donors at the Convention

By BRIAN ROSS

Aug. 27, 2008—

DENVER--Police in Denver arrested an ABC News producer today as he and a camera crew were attempting to take pictures on a public sidewalk of Democratic Senators and VIP donors leaving a private meeting at the Brown Palace Hotel.

Police on the scene refused to tell ABC lawyers the charges against the producer, Asa Eslocker, who works with the ABC News investigative unit.

(Click here to watch video of the arrest. (http://javascript%3Cb%3E%3C/b%3E:openPopup%28%27http://abcnews.go.com/video/playerIndex?id=5670682%27,%20%27popup%27,%20800,%2 0635,%20%27status=1,%20resizable=1%27%29;)) A cigar-smoking Denver police sergeant, accompanied by a team of five other officers, first put his hands on Eslocker's neck, then twisted the producers arm behind him to put on handcuffs.

A police official later told lawyers for ABC News that Eslocker is being charged with trespass, interference, and failure to follow a lawful order. He also said the arrest followed a signed complaint from the Brown Palace Hotel.

Eslocker was put in handcuffs and loaded in the back of a police van which headed for a nearby police station.

Video taken at the scene shows a man, wearing the uniform of a Boulder County sheriff, ordering Eslocker off the sidewalk in front of the hotel, to the side of the entrance.

The sheriff's officer is seen telling Eslocker the sidewalk is owned by the hotel. Later he is seen pushing Eslocker off the sidewalk into oncoming traffic, forcing him to the other side of the street.

It was two hours later when Denver police arrived to place Eslocker under arrest, apparently based on a complaint from the Brown Palace Hotel, a central location for Democratic officials.

During the arrest, one of the officers can be heard saying to Eslocker, "You're lucky I didn't knock the f..k out of you."

Eslocker was released late today after posting $500 bond.

Eslocker and his ABC News colleagues are spending the week investigating the role of corporate lobbyists and wealthy donors at the convention for a series of Money Trail reports on ABC World News with Charles Gibson.

Hell, why not do a double header report on Lobbyists and unnecessary use of force by Police.

Thanks.

Damn, those were some big, not-messing-around cops.

I wonder if that reporter now has a whole new perspective on the Police State?

Will the rest fall behind the first to make a stand for what is right?Hmmm.
Realistically,this will only become more common everywhere so long as there is no accountability of the people responsible.Those in DC seem to think they are above the law.
