DU photographer convicted of failing to show sufficient respect to police...

This has been covered in the Photography Group for some time, but I think it needs a wider audience.

Carlos Miller (a.k.a. RagingInMiami) was convicted on several counts in connection with an incident where he disobeyed police orders to stop taking photos of an accident investigation they were making on a public street. He was essentially assaulted by the police, refused a plea bargain that would have restricted his sentence to "time served," and was now found guilty of, essentially, not being properly deferential to the authorities and a reluctance to willingly give up the First Amendment on their say-so.

I really don't have the time to go into the story much, but you can read more about it here:
