    Amy Goodman and Two Democracy Now! Producers Unlawfully Arrested At the RNC

    St. Paul, Minnesota - Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman was unlawfully arrested in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota at approximately 5 p.m. local time. Police violently manhandled Goodman, yanking her arm, as they arrested her.

    Goodman was arrested while attempting to free two Democracy Now! producers who were being unlawfuly detained. They are Sharif Abdel Kouddous and Nicole Salazar. Kouddous and Salazar were arrested while they carried out their journalistic duties in covering street demonstrations at the Republican National Convention. Goodman's crime appears to have been defending her colleagues and the freedom of the press.

    Ramsey County Sherrif Bob Fletcher told Democracy Now! that Kouddous and Salazar were being arrested on suspicion of rioting. They are currently being held at the Ramsey County jail in St. Paul.

    ...

    Amy Goodman is one of the most well-known and well-respected journalists in the United States. She has received journalism's top honors for her reporting and has a distinguished reputation of bravery and courage. The arrest of Goodman, Kouddous and Salazar is a transparent attempt to intimidate journalists from the nation's leading independent news outlet.

    --------

    Democracy Now! is a nationally-syndicated public TV and radio program that airs on over 700 radio and TV stations across the US and the globe.

    None of this is surprising, have read several accounts where the Minneapolis-St. Paul police have been somewhat over the edge in their dealings with any protestors... guess they want a sanitized convention, free from any dissent..

    Belichick Fan is looking for a voluntary banning by a mod from this board.. has a hard time setting limits on himself, so that might be a pretty good guess.. is cup of joe up yet, how about Elway 7 ("Crybaby Sally").. or PF 13.. there are many who will cry law and order crap..

    Does the constitution protect the right of assembly??? Or did George change this also.

    I'm pretty sure Boy King and his handlers have squashed that inconvenient 4th Estate thing... yeah...

    mainly by buying up all the stations and channels they can get their hands on... but when an independent news team comes to the RNC? yeah, that must be riot inciting endeavor...

    "arrest them, now! they're showing video of us beating the crap out of protesters!"

    Did you post something similar when the ABC crew was treated so badly in Denver?

    You may have, I may have missed it. If I have, I apologize.

    There were issues in Denver, but Amy Goodman was not arrested... that is the point of this thread.. if she were arrested there would be a similar thread.. the police are not the RNC.. we all are aware of that.

    If I Put A Sign On My Front Door That Reads
    "Do Not Enter" And You Have The Foolish Belief That Because Of Your Attitude That You Think "Your Right" And "I'm Wrong" Then You Ignore My Sign And Try To Enter, I Will Shoot You F-cking Deader Than A Door Nail.

    Harry, I have told you for months now that you post things to piss people off purposefully and that you're full of anger. Yet you're in denial and pretend to go about your daily schedule of horseback riding and having sex and enjoying life. but your subconscience and your conscious thought betray you.

    You are the most consistent angry poster on this board, bar none. Enjoy your ride today...both of them:D

    Were you in a coma last week?
    Many people were arrested last week also rip van winkle.
    Including a TV reporter trying to get some news from a sidewalk.

    This thread reeks of homerism ... :bricks:

    Just to keep things in a little balance, she was subject to arrest the minute she tried to interfere with the people that the police had in custody. Also, the police are not the RNC anymore than the Denver police were the DNC.

    I'd say PiNY...........

    Please don't arrest me officer, I'm with Democracy now..... HELP, HELP, I'M BEING REPRESSED. :singing:


    File this under - "when the police are around in riot gear, don't be an a-hole". And sure PC, St. Paul is one of the most liberal cities in the midwest, with a mayor that was one of the first public Obama supporters. I bet the Boy King had his hands all over this one. You do realize that those guys are not stormtroppers. They are St. Paul police officers, and probably liberal if they reflect there community as most police forces do.

    One thing liberal and conservative cops have in common though. They don't like douchebags that don't listen when they are attempting to restore order. :rolleyes:
