Mission Local’s Joe Eskenazi dives into how reporter Brian Carmody is being lauded for invoking his first amendment rights and not divulging the source that leaked the circumstances surrounding the death of public defender Jeff Adachi after the SFPD - under scrutiny for their conduct during the raid - took a literal sledgehammer to his door and walked off with a stack of his possessions.

The department claimed to be running an internal investigation into the leak, but so far their most visible response has been to storm the home of a freelance TV cameraman.
