...I'm okay with being REALITY-based.

Free Speech Overkill

Kos says it all. And check out the pics from Atrios. And a view from behind the wire from Talk Left.

Herding protesters into fenced-in corrals with razor wire and machine guns is not only overkill, it's unconstitutional and ridiculous. I wish just ONE of the main speakers this week would speak out for and advocate the freedom of protest. You can't defend against terrorism by cutting off the rights of citizens. Yet that seems to be the only response governments are capable. The entire system must be challenged and changed.
