Ethics of police shooting at journalist during the interview with a rubber bullet @ Standing Rock?
I've heard of power régimes around the world targeting news reporters but I didn't think that would happen here - while interviewing a person. Erin Schrode was shot point-blank by police rubber bullet near Cantapeta Creek in Standing Rock, North Dakota, on Nov. 2 2016 She was nowhere near the protectors, who were standing in freezing water to protest. Sheriff’s statement addresses police use of “less-than-lethal ammunition” in the form of rubber bullets. Shot by militarized police WHILE interviewing a man on camera at #StandingRock https://youtu.be/iAVKBIaEz-c
There have been serious problems with "journalists" joining in the protests and property damage, so they are part of the problem, not innocent bystanders.
Wow that is a truly lopsided assessment of the Standing Rock issues.
So, it is OK with you to have her shot with a rubber bullet for doing her job? Would it be OK with yourself if you were shot for standing around and talking about what's happening? Perhaps, keyboarding on your PC right now a rubber bullet is OK?
No journalist's job is to join in protest and property damage.
