The Marin Independent Journal reports today that Golden Gate Bridge officials are reviewing an incident in which a bridge officer shoved a KGO ABC7 photogapher as police closed the walkway to anti-war protest marchers on the south side of the bridge Monday. An officer used his palm to cover the lens of a camera held by KGO-TV cameraman Randy Davis, the IJ reported. Davis was then pushed by a bridge officer during a rally by the group Codepink, which had stationed protesters at each end of the bridge. Davis was cut in the face, said bridge spokeswoman Mary Currie. “What we saw was not acceptable, but the events are under internal review,” Currie told the IJ. “We want to review all aspects of what happened and have all the facts before we make a determination, but it did not look appropriate.”
