Cameraman Arrested Covering Story

The USA isn't the only place with occasional tension between the media and law enforcement. Check out this video of a Global News videographer getting arrested in Hamilton, Ontario. A 10-year old girl had just been killed in a traffic accident and news crews were showing up.

The debate on social media is whether this officer was within his authority to make the arrest? The cameraman said he was behind the yellow police tape. Others say, the scene was still unfolding and the officer repeatedly asked the cameraman to move; and he didn't.

Given this was a fatality involving a little girl, we can't think of a reason why the cameraman couldn't just move to another location? We sure hope this wasn't done with the intention of hoping for a 'viral' video.
