The Arrests of Amy Goodman, Nicole Salazar, and Sharif Abdel Kouddous at the RNC Convention

I'm stunned by the recent arrest of Democracy Now! journalists Nicole Salazar, Sharif Abdel Kouddous, and then Amy Goodman in Minneapolis at the RNC convention. It's a gripping and terrifying examination of the stormtrooping tactics of "peace officers" outside the Republican Convention hall.

Phil - Thank you for bringing these arrests to our attention. We were just posting one of them on our blog as well when I saw them on Behind the Lines. It is so maddening and tragic to watch the attempts to smother free speech in our country. Thank you for this thoughtful post. J. Ross
