TAG | Fascism
This is how the so called law enforcement in the State of Texas works. This officer stated “you are videotaping me and I want to know who you are”, and harassed several individuals for clearly no reason. The same so called officer also grabbed at the video camera, and then claimed that the person video taping had effectively attacked him. Shame on Houston and the state of Texas. If this type of police behavior is allowed to stand, one can only conclude that fascism is alive and well in Texas. 1

One by one they fall. Change is here. This time it’s citizen journalism and related first amendment rights.
As reported by Mark Hemingway1, Senator Feinstein D-California and Durbin D-Illinois have proposed an amendment to a new “press shield law”; the law originally put fourth by Specter D-Philadelphia.
According to observers, this amendment has the purpose of making activities such as the infamous ACORN video sting illegal or at a minimum no longer federally protected journalistic activity.
