The tension between some journalists and some peace officers continues, as the ACLU of Southern California sues the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department for interfering with freelance photographers on suspicion of casing public facilities for terroristic purposes, and the Newspaper Guild organizes a protest of the alleged rough treatment given photographers by officers in the Occupy Oakland mêlée (pictured). The Northern California ACLU, meanwhile, has quickly filed an ambitious request for records of the Oakland Police Department concerning its unusually forceful confrontation with the Occupiers.
