ACLU Wants Investigation of RNC Press Suppression

In addition to the coordinated premptive arrests and home invasions carrid out by local police, along with the over-aggressive and violent crack down on protesters, it turns out the local police in St. Paul/Minneapolis during the Republican National Convention suppressed the activities of accredited journalists covering the protests.

The ACLU has renewed it's call for an investigation into the treatment of the press by local authorities. Among the members of the press arrested was Democracy Now host and reporter Amy Goodman who was attempting to secure the release of fellow Democracy Now reporters after their arrest. Here is the video of her arrest.
