So what the hell is it with these cops arresting peaceful protesters? and journalists? and lawyers? This is freaking CRAZY! Here's the press release and video from Democracy Now! And where the hell is NPR on this? Why aren't they covering these arrests on All Things Considered? They've been going on for three days! Bozos. But that might interfere with the policies set up by the Republican stooge at the head of NPR these days...can't have any negative publicity about the Republican National Convention, can we? just lots and lots of coverage of Ms. Beauty Queen Palin.
And guess what, folks: the FBI is involved. The Federales, the Minnesota state police, the locals. This is criminal. They should be going after real criminals and not intimidating people simply exercizing their first amendment rights to freedom of speech, assembly, and press!
