    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

    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 in Denver arrested an ABC News producer today as he was attempting to take pictures 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.

    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 producer's 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.

    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's "World News with Charles Gibson."

    Here's another good story http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/scie.../376139443/the_right_of_the_people_to_pea.php

    The democrats aren't any better than the republicans. I voted for obama for senate because the republican candidate was incredibly bad. At the time I thought the main danger in illinois was financial irresponsibility and gun control but on a national level I'd be better served with a democrat who would fight against liberty being taken in the name of terrorism. He approved of the recent crappy fisa bill. When your choices are giant douche or turd sandwich you wind up losing either way.

    Looks like Tranny is starting to make a regular appearance. Wonder when it gets to be the headliner.

    I'll be at the RNC, so I'm sure I'll get some video of more rogue LEOs.

    I was hoping there was a whole new side of the story involving post-op cops and politicians.

    The worst part is that I've been cruising car forums and thought you meant transmissions, then I remembered this is OT. :rofl:
