St. Paul Gestapo and Amy Goodman

You didn't ask me, but the treatment Of Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! and her two producers is shameful and a sign of a rising tide against dissent and independent journalistic coverage of dissent in this country. The scenes of the gestapo-like police in St Paul contained in the links below are bone chilling.

Democracy Now! Host Amy Goodman was arrested while questioning police about the unlawful detention of Producers Sharif Abdel Kouddous and Nicole Salazar, who were arrested while they carried out their journalistic duties in covering street demonstrations at the Republican National Convention.
