Miami Police Arrest a Report Who is Carrying a Concealed Gun

MIAMI (AP) — A television reporter investigating a story on school violence was arrested after carrying a loaded gun onto school property, authorities said.

Jeffrey Weinsier of WPLG-TV, an ABC network affiliate, was taken into custody Tuesday at Miami Central High School after ignoring several warnings not to walk on school property, Miami-Dade schools police said.

"Kindly go across the street now," an officer is shown telling Weinsier during the videotaped encounter.

"I'm not," Weinsier replied. The officer then handcuffed him.

Weinsier, 40, was charged with possession of a firearm on school grounds, trespassing on school property with a weapon and resisting officers without violence.

The photographer working with Weinsier, Frank Debesa, said afterward: "Jeff did have a gun on him."

Weinsier began carrying a gun after he received death threats stemming from a series he did about unsanitary conditions at restaurants, according to the station. . . . .

Total media manipulation!!! cant believe you stupid reporters.....even FOX news media reports the same bull..you expect people to believe that when the video says it all. You can clearly see..his own taping that he did not enter the school grounds, He was on the public sidewalk, and there is no way in hell way that he was carrying a gun on him. The real report is that he did have a gun, but it was in his car and he does have a permit to carry a conceal gun. Total media manipulation!!!

The police was wrong...and he was right.
