Photojournalist arrest update

Miller The Society of Professional Journalists has stepped into the ring to help defend Miami photojournalist Carlos Miller, left, who claimed he was unjustly arrested while taking photos in Miami's Upper Eastside last month.

The SPJ's local chapter fired off an open letter to Miami Police Chief John Timoney asking him to intervene and calling Miller's arrest "simply outrageous."

Last week, the SPJ's Legal Defense Fund announced it was donating $1,000 to help Miller with his legal fight. Category 305, the Miami web publication Miller was working for the night of his arrest, will pitch in another $1,000 (here is Cat305's update on the case).

The legal battle will likely begin this week, with Miller due in court Wednesday morning. He has already pleaded not guilty to the charges filed against him, including disorderly conduct and resisting an officer without violence.

Thank all who are participating in attempting to retain some semblance of democracy in this country. I am disgusted by many of the comments I've read, but really feel sorry for the writers. When they finally crash into the wall of reality there may be permanent damage.
