CNN Reporter Arrested on Air Covering Minneapolis Protests

A few seconds later, he and his photographer are handcuffed. “A black reporter from CNN was arrested while legally covering the protests in Minneapolis. A white reporter also on the ground was not,” CNN said. Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz apologized and the crew was released.’s Leigh Scheps has more.

  • To all the mentally childlike Demofarts that watch FAKE NEWS and believe it, take a good look at the FAKE NEWS POLICE, take a look at how they go about their FAKE arrests and then come back on it. Look at how they take the would be reporter and attending girl behind the police line and then let them go, then look at how they dramatically leave the camera lying on the ground in dramatic fashion. This is so trashy that even an audience of 1920's people would boo it out the theatre Go away CNN, your jokes stink as bad as your hosts mouths.

  • Refund my Tax Dollars! Liberal Governors & Mayors took my money to protect me and my property. They have not kept their side of the bargain. ReFund my tax Dollars, Now! You have taken property tax, sales tax, state income tax not counting all the fees on License Plates, transfer of titles, and other fees and permits that you can think of to steal my Tax Dollars. You told me the taxes we pay is for the police, fire department, schools, and other services that you have not preformed. You owe me a ReFund on my Money. You aloud opportunist to burn, smash and loot my property and did nothing about it, that is a failure on your part of our agreement. ReFund my Taxes Dollars! That's my Opinion. What's Yours?
