CNN’s crew harassed in Atlanta, camera broken

cnncameraWhile covering protests in Atlanta on Saturday night, CNN national correspondent Natasha Chen was harassed, including having her cameraman’s camera broken. The protests came after a black individual, Rayshard Brooks, was shot and killed in a Wendy’s parking by an Atlanta officer.

According to Chen, they were filming angry protesters breaking into the Wendy’s restaurant and trying to set fire to an umbrella in the patio area when some protesters tried to block both the CNN camera and Chen’s iPhone camera.

She said at that point the protesters got aggressive, broke the CNN camera, and her crew withdrew.
