Thursday on CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,” Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) said the local police went too far and essentially disregarded the Constitution when they arrested reporters.
Cleaver said, “I think also some of the officers there, I think seem to have the idea that the Constitution is not a document that we have to embrace. I mean, you don’t arrest reporters. You don’t take the equipment in the United States. That’s what they do, you know, in Syria, And so I think they somehow need to be restrained and be segregated.”
