New Jersey police have apparently taken on a Soprano-like attitude towards photographers.
Today’s article is about a photographer from the Herald News, a paper based out of Passaic County, who was arrested after taking pictures of a house fire.
Yesterday’s article is about a photographer and editor from the Brazilian Voice who were arrested in Newark after refusing to give police photos of a dead person.
Today’s article states that Leslie Barbaro was charged with “obstructing a governmental function when she allegedly crossed yellow caution tape.”
The article also states that Barbaro took a photo that shows Paterson Police officer Eddie Pichardo blocking her as two pedestrians walk behind him.
However, the Herald News did not include that photo in their online story.
