Gibson: Aired ‘Hunt and Kill’ footage should suffice for prosecutors

Davidson County prosecutors are trying to get access to the raw footage of interviews from A&E’s Hunt and Kill series in which a Nashville Brown Pride gangster involved in a murder investigation said the group “did what we had to do.” TCOG Executive Director Frank Gibson was quoted in the story by the Nashville City Paper:

Frank Gibson, executive director of the Tennessee Coalition for Open Government, said reporters aren’t in the business of police work, and the footage aired should be enough for prosecutors.

“Journalists should not become arms of the police department or the prosecution,” he said. “Their job isn’t to investigate things and then turn their notes over to law enforcement.”
