Jack Booted Thugs.

Here is your press freedom, America. This is Amy Goodman from Democracy Now, a credentialed journalist at the RNC. She is being arrested at the convention for what seems to be "probable cause for a riot".



UPDATE: Washington Post has this story.

WTF? What was her horrible offense?

Not a good idea to attack a popular journalist for no reason, especially when she was no threat to anyone.
Donna Brazile also caught some pepper spray in the face as she was walking into the convention center.
The GOP are so desperate they are making some gigantic mistakes right now. An overzealous police force is just one small example of that.

I was flipping radio stations the other day and caught a newscaster call these people "anarchists." What is this, 1938 Russia?

The Unconventional Conventionist has several good posts [ 1, 3, 4, 5 ] on this subject as well.
