Television crew claims police mistreatment while covering Obama trip

A public access television crew complained of police mistreatment Thursday, after trying to get a picture of President Barrack Obama.

Just after dawn Wednesday, the three-woman crew for a Big Island public access program called “We Are Change Hawaii” drove up to the barricade near the president’s vacation home in Kailua.

Host B.J. Hampton was told they couldn’t stay, so she spoke into the video camera as she returned to the car.
