Feel free to protest, in this cage.

just read something I found a bit disturbing on… the protesters that are expected to show up for the Democratic National Convention this week are free to protest, so long as they do it from inside a rather scary ‘cage-like’ structure more than 2 blocks away.

it’s unbelievable really, to look at the photos here… THIS is the kind of thing I would have expected to see in some other country non-free (Soviet Russia perhaps?) but not here in the US. It’s a bit creepy really. “yeah, go ahead, you’re ‘free’ to protest, but you have to do it way over there, behind a razor-wire covered wall, with surveillance cameras watching your every move… go right ahead!”

Hooray Secret Service and Boston Police!
