CSP responds after journalists say they were targeted at protest

9NEWS (Denver): The chief of the Colorado State Patrol (CSP) said in a letter Tuesday that the agency “respects media” and “has not and will not target the media” after several Denver journalists said they were struck with non-lethal force from members of law enforcement while working to cover the protests in Denver that were sometimes violent.

The letter from CSP was in a response to a letter from Colorado Freedom of Information Coalition, the Colorado Press Association, the Colorado Broadcasters Association and the Colorado Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists which expressed “profound concern” over reports from journalists that law enforcement agents “specifically targeted” them as they covered protests downtown over the death of George Floyd in Minnesota.
