More on this morning's posts, and police actions against reporters

In addition to this police action breaking up peaceful protest, and this coverage of journalists being forced away from covering an AT&T party for the Democratic Senators most involved in the passage of retractive immunity for clear and direct violations of domestic spying law, we now have ABC reporters being arrested for taking pictures of Senators and their donors, and being threatened with violence by police. The story has a link to video, which features an officer repeatedly shoving the ABC reporter into the street, then accusing him with blocking traffic for being in the street; later, you can see him being throttled by another officer as he's arrested and hauled off to jail. Thanks to cow for the pointer.
