Guns Drawn on Journalists, Car Raided at NATO

Last night journalists were harassed, intimidated, and detained by gun-wielding Chicago police officers at the #noNATO protests.

"The place we were staying was earlier surrounded by CPD, no clue as to what happened but upon return the doors were open and alarm was going off. As we headed back after the march we were surrounded by CPD, about 6 vehicles, about 7 officers cuffed, detained, and interrogated us. We are at a safe place."

After hearing our place was surrounded by police under suspicious circumstances we were worried about tampering with our equipment. On our way back we were surrounded by unmarked police cars, they approached us with their guns drawn, cuffed, and interrogated us. They took everyones IDs but mine." - Tim Pool
