ABC producer spared DNC charges

The Denver city attorney’s office Thursday dismissed charges against ABC News producer Asa Eslocker, who was arrested in front of the Brown Palace Hotel on Aug. 27 while covering the Democratic National Convention.

Eslocker’s lawyer, Dan Recht, praised the attorneys office for the action.

“However, we continue to be outraged at the conduct of the individual officers in the incident,” Recht said. “Their harassment of Mr. Eslocker is captured on the videotape.”

“They the ABC crew were just doing their jobs, and they were doing it politely,” Recht said.

… He said Eslocker and the crew asked police, who were trying to force them off the sidewalk, where they could stand. After being told to move across the street, Eslocker was arrested in a “violent and thuggish manner,” Recht said.

…Recht said the public should be outraged.
