Military Police Steal Ohio Reporter’s Cameras And Delete Photographs

In Lima, Ohio photojournalist Jetta Fraser was deprived of her First, Fourth and 14th Amendment rights.

But if they were in fact military police, then it also appears they were in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act, which forbids military police from enforcing state law, except during martial law, rescinded under George Bush (IIRC).

“Blade reporter Tyrel Linkhorn and photographer Jetta Fraser said they went to the driveway entrance of the tank plant operated by General Dynamics’ Land Systems on Friday afternoon. They stayed outside the plant’s gate and did not pass an unmanned guard shack. The pair were leaving when they were stopped by military police.”

While both were on public property, later they found after “the cameras were returned seven hours later, several photographs had been deleted.”

The Blade contacted the office of “U.S. Sen. Rob Portman” who called General Dynamics, Point of Contact Keith Deters who is manager of the plant. Deters said he persuaded the military police to return stolen cameras after they deleted several photographs.

Why so serious?
