Medea Benjamin was arrested in a Senate Committee Hearing where Negroponte was testifying. Not for her distrubance of the hearing but for a bogus outstanding warrant for which she had appeared but which the court had no record. Seems they conveniently found it today. She is still in jail.
Hope she is getting better treatment than the women arrested yesterday at the white rose action. One woman lost circulation in a hand cuffed to a cell wall, and the officers would do nothing. similarly another person who had recently broken an arm was similarly twisted into a painful cuffed position.
I guess they want to teach us lessons or frighten us. Won’t work.
