Anarchy in Anchorage

It never makes any sense to me when the boss doesn't know the rules. Ever.

Romenesko reports:

Police took more than 100 photos of the scene of a shooting at the Anchorage Football Stadium, then returned them to the McClatchy paper a few hours later after learning that the seizure violated a federal law that prohibits almost all searches of newsrooms. Editor Patrick Dougherty says he's offered police more than three dozen photos that have been published, but will resist a subpoena for those that haven't been published.
