The Boston Police Department, never one to refrain from intimidating journalists, tried to flex its muscle against reporters from the Bay City Examiner earlier this month as they tried to record some type of training exercise in a parking lot clearly in view from the surrounding public sidewalks.

Boston police officer Michael Principe remained uncomfortably close to Andrew, even when Andrew asked him to step back as there is no need to invade the personal space of another just to have a conversation.
