So a bunch of thugs went wild in Sacramento and looted and torched
multiple businesses and the the newspaper reported on it. Apparently
this upset the looters and thugs because it helped identify who they
were. So the local grievance group complained to the newspaper, which
pulled down the story and the photos to please them rather tell them
them to pound sand, which is what a news organization should do when
someone tries to censor them.

The story included surveillance photographs of people suspected
of vandalizing stores in downtown Sacramento following a night
of protests against police brutality.

Members of the community asked that the story-- and the
photographs-- be removed from our website the next day and we
did so. We apologize for the harm that publishing those photos
may have caused.

The harm they caused? The harm?!?!

The *harm* was the innocent store owners who were stolen from and had
their livelihoods destroyed by animals. But now we're apologizing to the
animals for harming *them* by showing them committing the crimes.

This sad excuse for a newspaper also says they will no longer use the
word 'looter' or 'looting' because it's racist. It's not, of course,
that's simply a lie-- anyone of any race can and has looted-- but since
in the most recent cases, it was black people doing the looting, the
word must now be declared racist so that critics of this lawless
behavior can be silenced from talking about it under threat of being
declared raaaaccciiiist.

It's becoming like England where thugs are protected to the exclusion of all else, because as we know, "society created them and their situation" therefore they aren't to blame.

Yes, deprecating 'looter' as racist is racist. But withholding
photographs that imply criminality, pre-trial, seems correct.

That's not what "imply" means, you blithering idiot. A photograph taken
of the criminal committing a crime isn't an implication of any kind.
It's witnessing a crime in progress.

Also, in the free world, criminal trials take place AFTER the crime was
committed, not pre-crime. If the photojournalist took a picture of a
looting or vandalism or other criminal act while it was being committed
by the perpetrator, then of course the photograph was taken before the
trial. That would be a photograph taken during commission of a crime.

So a bunch of thugs went wild in Sacramento and looted and torched
multiple businesses and the the newspaper reported on it. Apparently
this upset the looters and thugs because it helped identify who they
were. So the local grievance group complained to the newspaper, which
pulled down the story and the photos to please them rather tell them
them to pound sand, which is what a news organization should do when
someone tries to censor them.
The story included surveillance photographs of people suspected
of vandalizing stores in downtown Sacramento following a night
of protests against police brutality.
Members of the community asked that the story-- and the
photographs-- be removed from our website the next day and we
did so. We apologize for the harm that publishing those photos
may have caused.
The harm they caused? The harm?!?!
The *harm* was the innocent store owners who were stolen from and had
their livelihoods destroyed by animals. But now we're apologizing to the
animals for harming *them* by showing them committing the crimes.
This sad excuse for a newspaper also says they will no longer use the
word 'looter' or 'looting' because it's racist. It's not, of course,
that's simply a lie-- anyone of any race can and has looted-- but since
in the most recent cases, it was black people doing the looting, the
word must now be declared racist so that critics of this lawless
behavior can be silenced from talking about it under threat of being
declared raaaaccciiiist.

Yes, deprecating 'looter' as racist is racist. But withholding
photographs that imply criminality, pre-trial, seems correct.

Generally, this is where Thanny would jump in and scream 'due process!',
followed by the observation that they should be considered 'innocent
until proven guilty!'.

Then he'd blame them for doxxing private citizens - but only if it was
CNN reporting on it.

It's absurd to say that the media shouldn't even report on-- they pulled
the whole story down, not just photographs, remember-- let alone show
pics and footage of crimes in progress just because the people who are
committing the crimes are stupid enough to be DOING IT ON CAMERA.

The presumption of innocence pertains to the burden of proof the state
must meet to take away a person's freedom or property. It has no
relevance to how the public at large must treat one another. Never in
the 200+ years of this country's existence has it been seriously
suggested that the media be gagged from pre-trial crime reporting, let
alone that media should gag itself.

Even OJ Simpson's most ardent supporters never claimed it was
inappropriate for the media to report on the story or cover his trial
pre-verdict.

crime. You choose to do that and you get whatever comes with it. It's

owner a place to start to pursue a civil claim against the guy who
destroyed his property. Why aren't we more concerned about restitution
for the victim than worrying about how a criminal's picture in the paper
might make his life more difficult for him?

And yes, the public most certainly has an interest in a night of rioting
and lawlessness in their city, along with how the city government
responded (or purposely didn't respond, as the case may be).

No, you're lying. This is crap you just came up with yesterday to
justify your pro-censorship position. It never bothered you earlier that
newspapers write about crime and show pictures of criminals, any of
which could have influenced opinions of a potential jury pool.

Maybe there should have been no newspaper coverage of Watergate.

Maybe the Pentagon Papers shouldn't have been published, given their
potential to influence opinion.

Do you even understand the role of a newspaper in society? It's supposed
to point out problems that elected officials are ignoring, like sucking
up to the so-called George Floyd protestors, calling everybody peaceful,
while ignoring massive amounts of ordinary crime taking place that
couldn't have possibly been caused by police brutality.

And when a newspaper actually has a photographer on scene while genuine
news is taking place and takes a photograph illustrating what's going
on, you don't condemn them and question whether the public should be
interested in widespread crime taking place. You buy a copy to show
support because they're doing their job.

news is taking place and takes a photograph illustrating what's going
on, you don't condemn them and question whether the public should be
interested in widespread crime taking place. You buy a copy to show
support because they're doing their job.
An incendiary photo that provides no additional information other than
the possible identification of a suspect seems to me objectionably
prejudicial, especially when introduced via media frenzy.

Because obtaining evidence is prejudicial. The judge might think the
prosecution made a prima facie case. The jury might find the evidence
compelling and convict.

So a bunch of thugs went wild in Sacramento and looted and torched
multiple businesses and the the newspaper reported on it. Apparently
this upset the looters and thugs because it helped identify who they
were. So the local grievance group complained to the newspaper, which
pulled down the story and the photos to please them rather tell them
them to pound sand, which is what a news organization should do when
someone tries to censor them.
The story included surveillance photographs of people suspected
of vandalizing stores in downtown Sacramento following a night
of protests against police brutality.
Members of the community asked that the story-- and the
photographs-- be removed from our website the next day and we
did so. We apologize for the harm that publishing those photos
may have caused.
The harm they caused? The harm?!?!
The *harm* was the innocent store owners who were stolen from and
had their livelihoods destroyed by animals. But now we're apologizing
to the animals for harming *them* by showing them committing the
crimes.
This sad excuse for a newspaper also says they will no longer use the
word 'looter' or 'looting' because it's racist. It's not, of course,
that's simply a lie-- anyone of any race can and has looted-- but
since in the most recent cases, it was black people doing the
looting, the word must now be declared racist so that critics of
this lawless behavior can be silenced from talking about it under
threat of being declared raaaaccciiiist.
https://www.sacbee.com/news/local/article244097082.html
Yes, deprecating 'looter' as racist is racist. But withholding
photographs that imply criminality, pre-trial, seems correct.
It's absurd to say that the media shouldn't even report on-- they
pulled the whole story down, not just photographs, remember-- let
alone show pics and footage of crimes in progress just because
the people who are committing the crimes are stupid enough to be
DOING IT ON CAMERA.
The presumption of innocence pertains to the burden of proof the state
must meet to take away a person's freedom or property. It has no
relevance to how the public at large must treat one another. Never in
the 200+ years of this country's existence has it been seriously
suggested that the media be gagged from pre-trial crime reporting, let
alone that the media should gag itself.
Even OJ Simpson's most ardent supporters never claimed it was
inappropriate for the media to report on the story or cover his trial
pre-verdict.
If I were ruling on it, I think I'd be asking (myself) whether the
photographs contain information that the public has a valid interest in,
beyond gawking. (And, I'm wondering why identities can't be masked.)
Why should they be masked? If I have a picture of a shitbag hurling a
Molotov cocktail through a storefront, why should he be given the
courtesy of having his identity masked? If you don't want to be
plastered all over the news committing crime, there's a 100% effective
way of guaranteeing that never happens to you: don't go out and commit
crime. You choose to do that and you get whatever comes with it. It's
called consequences.
And regardless of the thug's criminal trial, it gives the INNOCENT store
owner a place to start to pursue a civil claim against the guy who
destroyed his property. Why aren't we more concerned about restitution
for the victim than worrying about how a criminal's picture in the paper
might make his life more difficult for him?
And yes, the public most certainly has an interest in a night of rioting
and lawlessness in their city, along with how the city government
responded (or purposely didn't respond, as the case may be).
Okay, my view has to do with the difficulty of avoiding pre-judgement in
a jury (or judge) pool for a trial, and whether/when there's an
immediate public interest that overrides that. But, no, I can't get
behind the newspaper's stated reasoning, which indeed seems scary.
No, you're lying. This is crap you just came up with yesterday to
justify your pro-censorship position. It never bothered you earlier that
newspapers write about crime and show pictures of criminals, any of
which could have influenced opinions of a potential jury pool.
Before "yesterday", I hadn't even thought about it
And yet we have a long history of you favoring censorship based on
different crap. This was merely the crap you came up with yesterday.
Post by moviePig
...nor about "looters" being racist.
Nice tangent, entirely irrelevant to your pro-censorship position.
moviePig couldn't help going into Usenet's Biggest Asshole mode what
with double quotes about "looters". No, moviePig, if someone is
photographed or videoed carrying goods out of a retail store that
weren't paid for is a looter. That is actual evidence that he committed
acts of looting.

This is actual English, a noncontroversial word use, regardless of
whether you question that someone caught looting is a looter.

While saying I wasn't bothered by it may be technically correct,

Maybe there should have been no newspaper coverage of Watergate.
Maybe. Unless there was somehow an overriding public interest...
Where do I find in civil rights law that a criminal has a right to privacy
during commission of a crime and cannot have a photograph taken by a
newspaper published in said newspaper?

There was no public interest. Public confidence had to be maintained in
the federal government, that no one was failing to conduct criminal
investigations and that government personnel themselves weren't part of
a criminal conspiracy being directed from the Office of the President.

There wasn't any. The public interest was in maintaining public support
for the war. The public wasn't entitled to know that learned people
advising military questioned both policy, objectives, and tactics, that
there was no way to win the war as it was being fought, and no important
American interests were at stake.

Do you even understand the role of a newspaper in society? It's supposed
to point out problems that elected officials are ignoring, like sucking
up to the so-called George Floyd protestors, calling everybody peaceful,
while ignoring massive amounts of ordinary crime taking place that
couldn't have possibly been caused by police brutality.
Newspapers everywhere thank you for your impassioned definition.
You should thank lexicographers everywhere for not getting angry enough
at your deliberate misuse of words to beat you to death.

That's not a "definition", you blithering idiot.

support because they're doing their job.
An incendiary photo that provides no additional information other than
the possible identification of a suspect seems to me objectionably
prejudicial, especially when introduced via media frenzy.
It documents that anyone going into areas in which widespread looting
was taking place would be able to witness looting, that using ordinary
observational skills, photographic evidence of crimes being committed
could be obtained and, therefore, crimes like this aren't impossible to
solve. It's evidence that even police offices patrolling on their
regular beats would have been able to catch criminals in the act of
committing crimes because they're being so very blatant about it.

It demonstrates that the mayor and city council and police had no actual
interest in arresting actual criminals committing actual crimes during
crime sprees, which might have brought the crime spree to an end much
much sooner.

Your legal theory is so specious, I predict that your next argument will
be that the prosecutor should be prevented from introducing evidence of
the crime as that would prejudice the jury to find that the facts do
indeed provide evidence of guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

It's prejudicial!

on-- they pulled the whole story down, not just
photographs, remember-- let alone show pics and footage
of crimes in progress just because the people who are
committing the crimes are stupid enough to be DOING IT ON
CAMERA.
The presumption of innocence pertains to the burden of
proof the state must meet to take away a person's freedom
or property. It has no relevance to how the public at
large must treat one another. Never in the 200+ years of
this country's existence has it been seriously suggested
that the media be gagged from pre-trial crime reporting,
let alone that the media should gag itself.
Even OJ Simpson's most ardent supporters never claimed it
was inappropriate for the media to report on the story or
cover his trial pre-verdict.
If I were ruling on it, I think I'd be asking (myself)
whether the photographs contain information that the public
has a valid interest in, beyond gawking. (And, I'm
wondering why identities can't be masked.)
Why should they be masked? If I have a picture of a shitbag
hurling a Molotov cocktail through a storefront, why should
he be given the courtesy of having his identity masked? If
you don't want to be plastered all over the news committing
crime, there's a 100% effective way of guaranteeing that
never happens to you: don't go out and commit crime. You
choose to do that and you get whatever comes with it. It's
called consequences.
And regardless of the thug's criminal trial, it gives the
INNOCENT store owner a place to start to pursue a civil claim
against the guy who destroyed his property. Why aren't we
more concerned about restitution for the victim than worrying
about how a criminal's picture in the paper might make his
life more difficult for him?
And yes, the public most certainly has an interest in a night
of rioting and lawlessness in their city, along with how the
city government responded (or purposely didn't respond, as
the case may be).
Okay, my view has to do with the difficulty of avoiding
pre-judgement in a jury (or judge) pool for a trial, and
whether/when there's an immediate public interest that
overrides that. But, no, I can't get behind the newspaper's
stated reasoning, which indeed seems scary.
No, you're lying. This is crap you just came up with yesterday
to justify your pro-censorship position. It never bothered you
earlier that newspapers write about crime and show pictures of
criminals, any of which could have influenced opinions of a
potential jury pool.
Before "yesterday", I hadn't even thought about it
And yet we have a long history of you favoring censorship based on
different crap. This was merely the crap you came up with yesterday.

...nor about "looters" being racist.
Nice tangent, entirely irrelevant to your pro-censorship position.
moviePig couldn't help going into Usenet's Biggest Asshole mode what
with double quotes about "looters". No, moviePig, if someone is
photographed or videoed carrying goods out of a retail store that
weren't paid for is a looter. That is actual evidence that he
committed acts of looting.
This is actual English, a noncontroversial word use, regardless of
whether you question that someone caught looting is a looter.

While saying I wasn't bothered by it may be technically correct,
Then why the fuck are you arguing if I didn't get it wrong?

it probably applies to everyone about lots of things, so I

How does that excuse your pro-censorship un-American attitude,
moviePig? That doesn't make any sense especially the battle flag
bit.

Maybe there should have been no newspaper coverage of Watergate.
Maybe. Unless there was somehow an overriding public interest...
Where do I find in civil rights law that a criminal has a right to
privacy during commission of a crime and cannot have a photograph
taken by a newspaper published in said newspaper?
There was no public interest. Public confidence had to be maintained
in the federal government, that no one was failing to conduct
criminal investigations and that government personnel themselves
weren't part of a criminal conspiracy being directed from the Office
of the President.

Maybe the Pentagon Papers shouldn't have been published, given
their potential to influence opinion.
Maybe. Unless there was somehow an overriding public interest...
There wasn't any. The public interest was in maintaining public
support for the war. The public wasn't entitled to know that learned
people advising military questioned both policy, objectives, and
tactics, that there was no way to win the war as it was being fought,
and no important American interests were at stake.

Do you even understand the role of a newspaper in society? It's
supposed to point out problems that elected officials are
ignoring, like sucking up to the so-called George Floyd
protestors, calling everybody peaceful, while ignoring massive
amounts of ordinary crime taking place that couldn't have
possibly been caused by police brutality.
Newspapers everywhere thank you for your impassioned definition.
You should thank lexicographers everywhere for not getting angry
enough at your deliberate misuse of words to beat you to death.
That's not a "definition", you blithering idiot.

And when a newspaper actually has a photographer on scene while
genuine news is taking place and takes a photograph illustrating
what's going on, you don't condemn them and question whether the
public should be interested in widespread crime taking place. You
buy a copy to show support because they're doing their job.
An incendiary photo that provides no additional information other
than the possible identification of a suspect seems to me
objectionably prejudicial, especially when introduced via media
frenzy.
It documents that anyone going into areas in which widespread
looting was taking place would be able to witness looting, that using
ordinary observational skills, photographic evidence of crimes being
committed could be obtained and, therefore, crimes like this aren't
impossible to solve. It's evidence that even police offices
patrolling on their regular beats would have been able to catch
criminals in the act of committing crimes because they're being so
very blatant about it.
It demonstrates that the mayor and city council and police had no
actual interest in arresting actual criminals committing actual
crimes during crime sprees, which might have brought the crime spree
to an end much much sooner.
Hmm, seems like that would all be 'additional information'...
Post by Adam H. Kerman
Your legal theory is so specious, I predict that your next argument
will be that the prosecutor should be prevented from introducing
evidence of the crime as that would prejudice the jury to find that
the facts do indeed provide evidence of guilty beyond a reasonable
doubt.
It's prejudicial!
Golly, how ever shall I become exonerated of your predictions...

So a bunch of thugs went wild in Sacramento and looted and torched
multiple businesses and the the newspaper reported on it. Apparently
this upset the looters and thugs because it helped identify who they
were. So the local grievance group complained to the newspaper, which
pulled down the story and the photos to please them rather tell them
them to pound sand, which is what a news organization should do when
someone tries to censor them.
The story included surveillance photographs of people suspected
of vandalizing stores in downtown Sacramento following a night
of protests against police brutality.
Members of the community asked that the story-- and the
photographs-- be removed from our website the next day and we
did so. We apologize for the harm that publishing those photos
may have caused.
The harm they caused? The harm?!?!
The *harm* was the innocent store owners who were stolen from and
had their livelihoods destroyed by animals. But now we're apologizing
to the animals for harming *them* by showing them committing the
crimes.
This sad excuse for a newspaper also says they will no longer use the
word 'looter' or 'looting' because it's racist. It's not, of course,
that's simply a lie-- anyone of any race can and has looted-- but
since in the most recent cases, it was black people doing the
looting, the word must now be declared racist so that critics of
this lawless behavior can be silenced from talking about it under
threat of being declared raaaaccciiiist.
https://www.sacbee.com/news/local/article244097082.html
Yes, deprecating 'looter' as racist is racist. But withholding
photographs that imply criminality, pre-trial, seems correct.
It's absurd to say that the media shouldn't even report on-- they pulled
the whole story down, not just photographs, remember-- let alone show
pics and footage of crimes in progress just because the people who are
committing the crimes are stupid enough to be DOING IT ON CAMERA.
The presumption of innocence pertains to the burden of proof the state
must meet to take away a person's freedom or property. It has no
relevance to how the public at large must treat one another. Never in
the 200+ years of this country's existence has it been seriously
suggested that the media be gagged from pre-trial crime reporting, let
alone that media should gag itself.
Even OJ Simpson's most ardent supporters never claimed it was
inappropriate for the media to report on the story or cover his trial
pre-verdict.
If I were ruling on it, I think I'd be asking (myself) whether the
photographs contain information that the public has a valid interest in,
beyond gawking. (And, I'm wondering why identities can't be masked.)
The journalist is a witness to history. In this case, he's a witness to
crimes in progress. It's news.

Who the fuck asked you to rule on it? We just don't have prior restraint
against the press in this country, as you've been told 200 times
already. But you weren't listening. There's just no ruling to make, no
way to take a newspaper into court.

I have no idea why you think newspapers shouldn't report on crimes in
progress when they just happen to be there, but then, you've just made
yourself into Usenet's biggest asshole.

I hope the store owners are able to get a court order preserving the
photos and getting copies that they can use in launching suits against
the malefactors. That's assuming the prosecutors decline to prosecute as
so many blue state prosecutors seem to be doing.

Then again, maybe the police and prosecutors will actually use this
evidence to make some arrests, in other words do their friggin' jobs for
a change!

Was the "offending article" printed in the newspaper?
Then the banned article may survive with anyone who kept
the printed issue. It's the web article that was censored.

And why are you assuming the Sac Bee was forced into this?
The Sac Bee management has been in favor of Black on White
violence for a long time, and just wanted a pretext for it's
readers so it could do what it wanted to do anyway.
