Journalists covering NATO protest stopped by cops with guns drawn, “Hands up, your fucking hands!”

After the United States plummeted in the World Press Freedom Index, nothing has been done to change that. The demotion in ranking was due to the crackdown on protesters and journalists in the Occupy movement. In fact, 25 reporters in total were arrested and/or beaten when that report was released. And here we are in the present day, with police stopping reporters while holding guns on them.

Tim Pool, a respected livestream journalist along with videographer Geoff Shively and Dustin & Jess (no last name given) were stopped by police, one man videotaping had his feed cutoff by the cops, just after authorities spilled out from numerous cars screaming, “Get your hands up, your fucking hands!” Which reminds me, can we get their badge numbers, their fucking badge numbers?

 

Watch the madness:

As reported here yesterday, the overkill by authorities is excessive. Apparently the big Global NATO war machine is in fear of journalists as well as protesters.
