What are your freedoms?

Are you only free until you try to speak out?

Bicycling RNC protester crashed into by a bicyclist cop (who apparently said no-harm, no-foul--ref:2nd video), but arrested anyway (ref:1st video), then abused in jail (ref:2nd video). He's denied food for 12 hours, beat, and bagged (and when he pukes in the bag over his head they refuse to take it off?). They claim he required force to restrain.





Here's a much more detailed account:

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. Are you outraged? Depressed? Skeptical of the whole scenario? Or just sure that it's not your problem?

I'd also love to hear if you've heard this already. From your friends? From blogs you read? What about from the "mainstream" media?

I hadn't heard this, and would like confirmation if possible.

but I think the depression - lack of action - that we have is part of the problem.

I expect he'll go through with suing them, and maybe it'll make a bigger splash then. No telling.
