Society of Professional Journalists letter to Santa Cruz DA in...

Mar 27, 2012 Full story: Indybay.org 10

Taking photographs, gathering information about a planned event and disseminating a report to a public audience should not be characterized as criminal conspiracy; instead, these activities make up the basic process of news gathering.

yup taking photographs,gathering info..etc is a part of being a journalist IF it is done correctly and as long as the "reporter" does not become involved and part of the story as did these so called journalists these so called journalists are nothing more than self proclaimed journalists..i could paint myself pink and call myself a cadillac.. but that doesnt make me a cadillac...these journalists are in fact thugs nothing more nothing less..didnt nixon proclaim "i m not a crook?" and bill clinton proclaimed"i did not have sex with that woman" that didnt make it so just as these folks are not true journalists...its an excuse and a lame one at that to try to get out of charges in order to run rouge doing whatever they please to whoever they please with no repurcussions whatso ever

Did these two idiots honestly believe that a solitary letter from a questionable source was going to exempt them from being responsible for their Felony trespass charges?

And did they leave BEFORE the Police told them to leave the premises?

Or was it long(48 hrs) AFTER they were warned by the Police?

Just watch the video of Darocy trying to heckle and bait Deputy Chief Clark into a confrontation about the Occupation. That's not exactly the action of a "Journalist"!!!!

Don't professional journalists have credentials from recognized news services and get paid for their work? I don't think that crackpot anarchistic bloggers who attempt to create and manipulate news get any special legal protection. Or deserve any.

Meanwhile, back at the farm...

BJ is squawking like crazy on Twitter.

"The Society of Professional Journalists decries charging journalists with conspiracy for favorable coverage: http://www.spjnorcal.org/blog/2012/03/27/spj-... ;

Hey BJ! If you think the Society of Professional Journalists is somehow including YOU (and Robert Kahn-job, Axel Darocy, and the others) in their fight to help save Bradly Allen from prosecution, FORGET IT! You have no "credentials" as a REAL journalist.

When the Judge refuses to buy Bradley and Darocy's defense of "Journalism", what defense could Kahn-job and BJ Whackjob possibly use?
