The Criminalization of Protest

• Reason
When cops clashed with anti-globalization demonstrators at the Pittsburgh G-20 summit in September, it was easy to assume that most of the altercations represented justified police responses to overzealous protesters.

But a number of disturbing photographs, videos, and witness accounts told a different story. Along with similar evidence from other recent high-stakes political events, they reveal an increasing, disquieting willingness to smother even peaceful dissent.

 This is just a sign of what's to come.  Best part is that the sheeple are blissfully ignorant of this - as they were of the events that took place in Seattle in 1999.  Give 'em their American Idol, their cans of Bud Light and their government can get away with anything they want without so much as a peep from the ignorant serfs.
