cnn journalist injured by police

by tuscaurora Friday, Aug. 18, 2000 at 6:38 PM

She was taken to Glendale Memorial Hospital, where she was diagnosed with bruised and contused ribs, and released.

Journalist injured

Trouble broke out briefly as officers tried to get a truck through an intersection

and protesters threw bottles and other objects.

Police responded by splitting the crowd in half

and taking over the intersection, using batons.

Several rubber bullets were fired.

During the standoff, a CNN photographer

dropped his cellular telephone, which was

picked up by a police officer. When a CNN

sound technician leaned forward to take the

phone from the officer, she said another

police officer jabbed her in the stomach with a

baton.

She was taken to Glendale Memorial Hospital,

where she was diagnosed with bruised and

contused ribs, and released.

Tom Johnson, chairman, president and chief

executive officer of the CNN News Group,

complained by letter to Los Angeles Police

Chief Bernard Parks that "unnecessary force"

was used against the sound technician. "We expect a prompt review by LAPD of

this incident and a reprimand of the officer involved," Johnson's letter said.

Police spokesman Commander David Kalish told CNN, "We apologize for that,

but, unfortunately, that's what happens in these types of situations when

journalists are integrated in a violent situation."
