Raid!

August 30th, 2008

It looks like I left the Twin Cities just in time to miss them going all police state. It was bad enough that many of my friends are having their commutes completely destroyed, making it hard for them to get in to work and, you know, keep their jobs (just what the Republicans should be doing you know, they don’t already lead to enough job loss). The idea that these people are having their houses raided… I mean, at least it’s a creative end run around the 1st amendment I suppose. They haven’t yet freely spoken, or peaceably assembled, so you can’t just go in and complain about it in court. Also, holing them up in their house before you get the warrant, and then getting one only for the house next door seems a pretty easy one to knock down.

For a more qualified assessment, here’s someone who actually already has his JD.
