Update: Miller reports he was stopped outside the courthouse by cops who had never heard of his newspaper and because they thought he was photographing the nearby B-2 police station.
Yawu Miller, senior editor at the Bay State Banner, which covers Boston's black community, reports he was stopped and frisked at Roxbury District Court today:
I was at Rox. District Court, shooting photos. As I left, I was approached by about 7 BPD officers. They FIOed me! 1st time in more than 20 years! I thought the gray hair disqualified me. Apparently not!
A report on this "field interrogation and observation" now goes into a BPD database.
