Connecticut cops violate First Amendment, punish photographer for using drone to document accident scene


A local news reporter from Hartford, Connecticut, has filed a lawsuit against the Hartford Police Department (HPD) for allegedly violating his free speech rights following a recent vehicle accident. Courthouse News Service (CNS) reports that Pedro Rivera was interrogated by officers and later punished by his employer for flying a small, remote-controlled aircraft 150 feet above the scene of the accident, even though he was within his rights to do so.
