On St. Paul

Wow. Blogs are reporting (I've only checked CNN, but it seems like this is going completely unreported in the MSM) that St. Paul has been turned into a military zone. There are YouTube videos of non violent protestors being pepper sprayed, stories about the FBI pre-emptively directing arrests of protestors (who are subsequently charged with fire code violations), and journalist Amy Goodman from Democracy Now was arrested for attempting to report on the violence.

Doesn't this seem like something Americans usually condemn when it happens in places like China?

When do the tanks roll into St. Paul?

Jesus Chris, bias much? Did you not see the protestors being pepper-sprayed at the Dem convention?

I'm shocked it's happening in Minnesota, of all places. Minnesota used to be one of the most liberal states in the country -- home of Humphrey, Monsdale, and Paul Wellstone. What the heck happened? I grew up there, but things have definitely changed.
