Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal | WITI-TV
Photojournalist Kristyna Wentz-Graff was wearing media credentials and “was clearly not part of the protest” when city police arrested her Wednesday near the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, reports The Milwaukee Journal Sentinal. A police spokeswoman said Wentz-Graff “never identified herself as a journalist to officers.” It’s the second time in the past two months that Milwaukee police have arrested a working photojournalist. A WITI-TV videographer was arrested in September while covering a house fire. || Storified: Josh Stearns at Free Press is using Storify to track journalist arrests at Occupy protests around the country. | Printed: Occupy D.C. begins distributing its own self-published newspaper, The Occupied Washington Post.
