Ah yes, freedom of the press. Grand isnt it? Unless you happen to be a reporter taking pictures of “big” Democrat donors and senators meeting at a hotel in Denver during their convention.
ABC News producer Asa Eslocker was arrested today outside the Brown Palace Hotel while doing investigative reporting on corperate lobbyist and political conventions.
Earlier in the day Eslocker was told by law enforcement that the sidewalk from which he was taking pictures was owned by the hotel and was forced across the street into oncoming traffic. Two hours later Denver police arrived and placed Eslocker under arrest based on a complaint from within the hotel.
At the time of arrest ABC laywers were refused an explanation for the arrest. It was later disclosed that Eslocker is charged with trespassing, interference, and failure to follow a lawful order.
Whether the charges stick or not is irrelevant. What we should note is the extreme prejudice Democrats are taking to protect the money trail or dissent which might reshape their carefully planned narrative of the convention.
I pray Republicans are not as stupid next week.
