Reporter arrested for packing at school

A television reporter investigating a story on school violence was arrested after carrying a loaded gun onto school property, authorities said.  Jeffrey Weinsier of WPLG-TV, an ABC network, was taken into custody Tuesday at Miami Central High School after ignoring several warnings not to walk on school property, Miami-Dade schools police said.

AP article here.  Here’s my question: How did they know he was packing?  The whole point of “concealed” is that no one can see your gun.  Unless this guy was looking for a confrontation with the 5-O, I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around how they knew he had a heater.


  1. says video shows the guy on the sidewalk, not on school grounds, and no gun is visible.
