Editor's Comment: They were very briefly "detained" - like for maybe a few minutes. They immediately called back to Telemetro and it was on the air instantly. This little incident was quickly resolved - the low level cops at the scene screwed up. I've had cops on the street tell me "you can't video here" and I just look at them and ask "why not?" They never have a very good response, and I just ignore them. The National Police officers on the street could use a little more training on how to deal with the media. The higher ranking guys who are likely to appear on camera for whatever reason do alright, but the lowest level guys tend to screw up when you surprise them.
