So she was ordered to disburse and refused. She also didn’t have her press card on her at the time 🤷‍♂️

The press must be permitted to cover all events such as this. But it certainly looks like she did not have any press credentials visible. What are the police to do? Allow anyone to just declare they are “with the press”?

ALL Journalists Are Bastards. There should be a database of journalists with all their articles and a bio so we can disregard the activists and their bullsh*t.
