Bisbee animal control officer on paid leave, investigation underway after public filming incident

Every federal court that has addressed the question has held that filming public employees in public is not only legal, it is constitutionally protected under the First Amendment. There were no grounds for any arrest. And here's the stinger from the article:
Coleman confirmed that Luberto is on paid administrative leave, but said the three officers involved in the videographer's arrest are still on the job and are not being investigated.
When asked why the policemen's actions are not under investigation, Coleman paused before responding.
"Well that's an interesting question," she said. "I don't know why they're not under investigation. I'll have to ask Chief Long on Monday."
So it didn't even occur to anyone that the police who tackled and arrested a man who wasn't breaking the law in any way should be investigated for their actions.
