Virginia Tech Student Photojournalist Detained, Equipment Held

According to an article on the Student Press Law Center web site, Collegiate Times photojournalist Shaozhuo Cui was detained by police on Monday because he matched a description of the possible shooter on the Virginia Tech campus. While the student newspaper isn't objecting to his being detained given the circumstances, the authorities have not returned his cameras or identification cards yet, including images he shot early that day.

The police had no right to detain this photojournalist's equipment. I think the Collegiate Times should seek an injunction...
