Notes and Photos from Alex's Trip to NY
sept 6, 2004
Alex Jones -- "I've Never Seen the Police State This Bad. This So-Called National Security Event Was, in Truth, Textbook Martial Law. My crew and I, despite having official NYC Press credentials, were threatened with arrest at least three times a day, had a still camera smashed by police, were detained twice, had photos taken of us by police and were told that we had no right to film in the City.
None of this has anything to do with terrorism or security. It's about setting the precedent that we have no First Amendment.
On our last day in New York, New York One, a 24-hour news TV Station, reported on a memo that they had obtained from the NYPD instructing the police to harass independent media and to coddle mainstream media."
