‘We’re With You’: ACLU, Press Freedom Advocates Denounce Attack on Journalist by LA Sheriff’s Deputies

Video footage of the incident contradicts official reports from Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

A large number of sheriffs’ deputies converged on the area surrounding St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood, California where two L.A. County sheriffs’ deputies were being treated for after being shot and gravely injured in attack. Reporter Josie Huang, who was on scene covering the incident, was later arrested by law enforcement despite repeated attempts to identify herself as a member of the press.
