The Gestapo Has Landed in Minneapolis

Amy Goodman, of Democracy Now, was arrested today in Minneapolis when she went to investigate the arrest of two of her producers. 

There have also been several preemptive arrests in Minneapolis over the weekend and this is clearly being done to intimidate any protesters and those who are there to document the protests. 

In addition to Amy Goodman’s arrest, a photographer for the Associated Press was also arrested as he was covering the protests.

An AP spokesman said of the arrest: “covering news is constitutionally protected, and photographers should not be detained for covering breaking news.”

What seems just as interesting is that the mainstream media isn’t covering this. 

This is very troubling.
