Sun photog busted

Police/media relations just aren't what they used to be.

A Calgary Sun story says Jim Wells, a veteran Sun Media photographer, was arrested yesterday and charged with obstruction after taking photos of a home invasion victim.

Witnesses say Wells was bruised after being pushed to concrete by a cop.

It is a cops say/Wells says situation until court, but it appears police tolerance for media trying to do their jobs has waned in Canada.

Time for some feature stories about police tactics when it comes to media doing their jobs.

Check of this Florida-based Photography Is Not A Crime website, which picked up the story.
