An Update on the Carlos Miller Arrest Story
Category 305 Miami politics, culture, nightlife, and traffic – Journalist Arrest Case Continues: For the past few weeks I’ve been following the unfortunate arrest case of Carlos Miller. To recap for those of you who have not read my previous posts on the matter, Miller is a working journalist in Miami. On Feb 20th Miller was arrested and charged with nine counts by the Miami PD.
Miller’s real crime? Daring to take photographs of Miami PD who asked him not to take their picture. The problem is that photographing the police is not actually a crime and is actually protected by the First Amendment.
Miller has now hired an attorney and I’m looking forward to his case against the Miami Police Department. There is a lot more information and update on his situation here.
Photography is not crime.
