Reports from the police state

Andrew Sullivan:

Stunning pictures of protesters at the RNC. More here. Money quote from a photographer:

By the time I realized I was at the center of the conflict it was too late. The bombs and tear gas were exploding all around me and cops were screaming at everyone to go south toward the bridge. I yelled to one cop “I’m media! Where do I go?!” but he pointed his rubber bullet gun at me and yelled “Go to the fucking bridge!” It was utter chaos. The police were throwing gas and bombs in between the bridge and people being told to go to the bridge. Poor aim? Amid the mayhem I managed to click away a few frames, but I couldn’t help but notice what was going on. They had surrounded the area and were corralling what seemed like 300 people, including a large number of media and legal observers, onto the bridge for a mass arrest.

If you aren’t creeped out by what has been going on these past two weeks in America, you are not paying attention.

  1. This is BS. What happen to freedon of assembly, freedom of speech.
    How far from any event do you have to be to regain these freedoms?
    Maybe they would allow freedom of speech and assembly only in the desert.
    How can you protest when you can’t get close to the problem?
    This is a slippery slope.
