Sanford Warns Reporters About Contacting Workers
SANFORD, Fla. (AP) - The city of Sanford is warning reporters they could be arrested for stalking if they contact city staff outside of working hours.
City officials said Wednesday that workers had been followed and approached at their homes by reporters working on the Trayvon Martin story.
They say police won't hesitate to arrest members of the news media.
Trayvon Martin was fatally shot by a neighborhood watch volunteer last month while walking through a gated community. The shooter, George Zimmerman, has claimed self-defense and he hasn't been arrested for killing the unarmed black teen.
A special prosecutor is reviewing the case.
The case has garnered international attention because it raises questions about racial profiling, vigilantism and Florida's gun laws.
