  •  Sure, the cops can arrest journalists at will... (12+ / 0-)

    but the journalists have the voices, via their news sites.

    The cops rely on those news sites to get their version out.

    Who ya gonna believe: the lying cops, or the voices of the journalists who were there, and arrested for no-goddamn-thing?

    It seems to me that the Ferguson powers-that-be are attempting to create another Tianeman Square scenario.

    If I'm wrong, it's not b/c the Ferguson cops & mayor & MO gov. aren't working hard to give that impression.

    English usage is sometimes more than mere taste, judgment and education - sometimes it's sheer luck, like getting across the street. E. B. White

      This same parallel popped into my head last night.

      You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity. Indeed that's what we provide in our own modest, humble, insignificant... oh, fuck it. -- M. Gustave

      Never pick a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel.

      We could end up getting some really, really, really in-depth investigative journalism in Ferguson if they keep ticking off reporters.
