Not sure how many of you follow Jane Hamsher’s twitter feed, but she is currently being detained in the guardhouse at Quantico. Best I can guess is she was going to deliver petitions with David House, Bradley Manning’s friend, and was detained. She’s been there before, and never had any incidents, but now they have decided to step up a program of outright harassment. They won’t let her on the base or off the base, and are threatening her with arrest if she leaves. It’s pretty crazy. Way to go, America! Home of the free and land of the brave!
Now I know two things are going to happen with this thread. First, the Hamsher haters will cackle with glee. Second, the internet tough guy and worshipers of an authoritarian state will giggle about “You should know better than go on a military base.” If that is all you have to contribute to the debate, save us all some time and energy putting up with your bullshit.
They are now towing her car because they refuse to accept her proof of insurance. I think we all need to break out our foam fingers! USA! USA!
