Video of Goodman's arrest

Behold, Alaskans, what your Senators voted to allow: the muzzling of the free press. Or rather, the intimidation and harrassment thereof.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune continues to cover this story. The Minneapolis Post has an interesting article on the civil rights of journalists in this situation.

NPR has finally figured out what's happening.

Did you see the surprisingly similar videos of police arresting CodePink protesters at the DNC? Startling, to say the least.

land of the free?

Was this in the US or Zimbabwe?

Sorry for being an ass, Deirdre. I just get pretty mad at this crap. Y'all are still welcome to visit, I'll have the pool warm soon :)

No apology necessary--I'm beginning to seriously wonder at this kind of thing.
