Amy Goodman Also Arrested at the RNC

This is old news by now, but journalist Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! was arrested at the convention on Monday. Here's a video of her arrest.

There's a movement afoot to get the Ramsey County Attorney and St. Paul City Attorney to drop the charges (felony probably cause riot charges).

This is a dangerous and reprehensible attack on the freedoms of all Americans. The partisan Republican Sheriff is the one who should be facing a criminal investigation, not innocent journalists.

Hey! Did you see the ABC News producer who was arrested at the Dems convention for attempting to film the Dems contributors at the Brown Palace? Funny thing, the producer was on the public sidewalk but the Dems wanted him gone.
