Oh wait! What am I saying?

A San Francisco journalist said Sunday authorities knocked down the gate of his home with a sledgehammer, handcuffed him for hours and seized thousands of dollars in electronics after he refused to identify a confidential source.

The journalist, Bryan Carmody, said in an interview that the raid occurred Friday — though officers from the San Francisco Police Department first asked him two weeks ago about who provided a police report that revealed details of the death of the city’s longtime public defender, Jeff Adachi, in February..

San Francisco journalist says police raided his home after he refused to identify source

But how this can be SaFran? You are the Mecca of liberal thought and absolute devotion and respect for the profession of Journalism! What happened?

When the officers arrived at Carmody’s home, he said, “They asked me to give them the source. Of course I declined.”
When authorities returned on Friday, Carmody said officers had a warrant that appeared to say they were looking for the report, which was described as “stolen or embezzled” property.

“Today’s actions are one step in the process of investigating a potential case of obstruction of justice along with the illegal distribution of a confidential police report,” it said.
The local chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists condemned the raid, saying it “shows an alarming disregard for the right to gather and report on information.” The group said it was seeking more information on why the department did not follow California’s shield laws, which protects journalists who refuse to disclose a source’s identity.

I love it when Journos find out the hard way they can expect true danger from those they swear will protect them. One journo deviate from being propagandist and felt the power of the government he is supposed to protect.

  1. Leftist cannibalism at it’s natural finest. Will they learn? Based on history, not until it is far too late.

  2. Apparently the SFPD didn’t contact Obama, Comey or Holder. They were able to hack into Sharon Atkinson’s computers looking for the identity of sources without the need for a Friday morning raid. Then again maybe they were sending a message to other journalists. Of course the Progressive Socialists have as much respect tor the first, fourth and fifth amendments as they do for the second.

  3. Leftist Journalists think they are immune from this because they are Leftists. They forget that even if they report negatively on the Right 90% of the time, that other 10% is what is going to get them hurt.

    Also, their fear of the Right is just more projection. They know how terrible the Left treats journalists, but they are Leftists, so they have to believe that the Right is worse.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
