The news from St. Paul is pretty disheartening. Dig in:
Greenwald on Federal involvement in pre-convention police raids.
Greenwald on today's arrests--280 arrests was the last number I saw.
Democracy Now's Amy Goodman arrested for asking to speak to a police commander about two DN journalists beaten and taken into custody.
The Uptake's coverage, including video of a St. Paul police presser. The most charming quote come at about the 7-minute mark of part 3 of the video, whereat a St. Paul PIO tells us that "Obviously, each of the individuals arrested was involved in some criminal activity."
Some of these independent newsies--certainly the ones I'm linking to--are of a liberal bent. But streaming video doesn't lie. Go fuck yourselves, Twin Cities police agencies. Way to reassure all of us that police ain't pigs.
