And speaking of Who Knew?........

At the Republican Convention, an area was set aside/cordoned off for demonstrators and protesters...a location that did not allow for the intersection of convention attendees and demonstrators. This sounds very much like what the Chinese government did at the Olympics...how creepy is that!

I haven't looked into the accounts too deeply, but some of the stories about police raids on houses in Minneapolis where demonstrators were staying are pretty scary--SWAT units surrounding houses, removing laptops and journals, and arresting journalists. Glenn Greenwald has a couple of posts on the subject (with links to more stories/viedoes) here here and here
