Ah... Good ol' Chicago Cops...

Police Handcuff NBC Chicago Photojournalist

Police release media members after about 10 minutes

From the article: "Your First Amendment rights can be terminated if you're creating a scene or whatever," the officer said.

When asked how they were creating a scene, the officer said, "Your presence is creating a scene."

There's a great video on the link. An impromptu interview with a Chicago cop well versed in the constitution.

The officer was quoted as saying the reporters mere presence was creating a scene

And that the first amendment can be terminated for creating a scene

Put them together and what does it mean?

The thing about the Chicago Police is that they're minutes away when seconds count.
