CNN Commentator Arrested

Keith Boykin
@keithboykin
@CNN commentator. New York Times bestselling author. Dartmouth. Harvard Law. Columbia IRAAS. Former White House aide.

So here’s what happened today. The NYPD arrested me at 96th Street and West Side Highway while I was taking photos and video to post to Twitter. I told the police I was with the Press, they walked by me and then turned around and arrested me.

The police locked me in tight zip ties that bruised my wrists. They held me in a van for an hour. Then a hot police bus for an hour. Then they took me
to 1 Police Plaza and held me in a jail cell with about 35 others with no social distancing and many of the others unmasked.

The police took my photo but they never read me my Miranda rights and never charged me with any serious crime. After 6 hours in police custody, they finally let me out of jail with a summons to appear in court.

The police have way too much power.

Just read the summons. I was charged with “walking on the highway” and “disorderly conduct - blocking vehicular traffic.”

Mind you, I didn’t block any traffic. The road was already obstructed by the police and the protesters. All I did was record it.

8. Of course there will........

AND especially the "RUDE" ones, the "You're Nasty Ones", any that Trump considers Fake News.
CNN should have known they would have been targeted, and CBS....who else......
