CNN reporter Omar Jimenez was arrested while covering protests in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

During a live broadcast Friday, Jimenez and his crew were arrested on air by Minnesota State Patrol after identifying themselves and showing their press credentials.

In a re-played clip, the arrest was shown on camera.

"We are live on the air at the moment. This is the four of us, we are one team. Just put us back where you want us, just let us know. Wherever you want us, just let us know," Jimenez tells a row of police officers before an officer comes behind him with handcuffs. ďDo you mind telling me why Iím under arrest, sir?"

Jimenez and his crew, who were covering the protests that were prompted by the death of George Floyd, were later released and spoke about the experience.

5. See how easy it is to arrest someone? So why are the murdering cops still roaming free?

Seems simple enough to just go up and handcuff 'em.

But what do I know.

12. When the reporter asked where should media be..."I don't know man, just following orders".

This is not going to be pretty if these guys can't think for themselves and question orders.

Tonight is going to be a ride.

13. O MY F***ING GAWD! Naturally they arrested the black dude first.

Are they fu****g crazy? They just made the case against the law enforcement of Minnesota. These are state police.

The governor aught to fire every damned one of them.

14. here's another link from cnn updated within the last 30 minutes

https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/29/us/minneapolis-cnn-crew-arrested/index.html

"Another CNN reporter says he was 'treated much differently'
CNN's Josh Campbell, who also was in the area but not standing with the on-air crew, said he, too, was approached by police, but was allowed to remain.
"I identified myself ... they said, 'OK, you're permitted to be in the area,'" recounted Campbell, who is white. "I was treated much differently than (Jimenez) was."
Jimenez is black and Latino. Kirkos is white, and Mendez is Hispanic."

15. Trying to interrupt his filming? Who was person in black hoodie?

Segment starts with the black-hoodie-short-shorts person getting arrested but you can see what appears to be the same black-hoodie-short-shorts person standing alone Behind the cops a few minutes later as they are arresting the CNN reporter.
Weird.
At 5:09, being arrested?
At 5:11, standing alone behind cops on left?
