322. What exactly is a police matter?
A crime scene I can understand, but even then, journalists are allowed to film them from whatever perimeter is set up. AFAIK, a "police matter" is hoey for "we don't want you photographing us". The first amendment is the first amendment. I read no such terms in that amendment, in fact, quite the opposite. He was on public land. If they lie in concert well enough, they will prevail. The real shame in all this is there is an arm with three stripes to the left of the shot - when supervisors enter into this type of basic rights violation, that's where the REAL crime occurs.
