Charges dropped against ABC producer arrested during DNC



In a barely reported story, the Denver city attorney’s office dropped charges against Asa Eslocker, the ABC producer who was arrested during the Democratic National Convention last month.

The decision to drop charges against Eslocker was reported Thursday, three workdays before Eslocker’s court hearing.

Although Eslocker’s attorney, Dan Recht, acknowledge that police  “tried to censor the information that Mr. Eslocker and his crew sought to disseminate to the public,” ABC will not pursue legal action against the Denver Police Department.

So police departments around the country will continue making these arrests because even though the charges eventually get dropped, police succeed in censoring and quashing the First Amendment rights of photographers and journalists.

To ABC’s credit, they at least ran the planned story on corporate lobbyists and the money they spent at the Democratic National Convention, which is what Eslocker was working on when he got arrested.

But by not pursuing legal action against the Denver Police Department, they make one wonder who is pulling their strings.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
