I think this article should be published in every newspaper and on every website that is concerned with the Bill of Rights. 

A news reporter, Dan Heyman, was arrested for doing his job on May 9 in West Virginia. He was trying to get Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price to say whether or not the Trump health care bill would make it harder for domestic violence survivors to obtain insurance. The incident took place in public as Price and Kellyanne Conway walked toward the state capitol building. 

The article mentions several other similar violations of the First Amendment by law enforcement since Trump became President.
