Isthmus staff taking photos of Wisconsin Capitol police are threatened with ‘obstruction’

But Capitol officers now regularly film people in the Capitol…

David Erwin, Capitol Police chief, would not talk to an Isthmus reporter — he referred questions to a Department of Administration spokesperson and then abruptly hung up the phone. Stephanie Marquis, the Department of Administration spokesperson, did not respond to phone calls or an email on Thursday afternoon seeking comment.

According to the American Civil Liberties Union, taking photos and recording video of police officers in public is a constitutional right.
