With the pepper spray cleared and the flash-bang grenades gone, the Minnesota Independent newspaper has put together a list of journalists who were detained or arrested around the Republican National Convention. The total: at least 42.

Check it out, along with a jarring photo of an ABC News crew in gas masks covering a protest, here.
