Re: “The indictment of journalist Aaron Cantú portends grim future for First Amendment

Aaron Cante wasn't the only "journalist" at the black bloc riot, but he was the only one to be charged with the other anarchists due to the video evidence obtained by the prosecution showing Mr. Cante clear involvement in criminal activities. When so-called journalists (and a self described "freelance journalist", which is often claimed in these instances by defendants caught red-handed) engages in riotous activities, they destroy not only their own journalistic integrity but give up their journalistic protections. Journalists are not above the law and have no right to incite a riot or engage in acts of assault or vandalism.

And to write "Although the charges were first brought by an Obama appointee, this is a perfect example of what justice may look like in the Trump era" is at the very least disingenuous if not absurd. The District of Columbia courts are the most liberal in the country and the Obama appointee would not have brought charges unless they knew the defendant was guilty and they could prove it beyond a reasonable doubt.

You can't have it both ways and claim you're just a reporter when you holding a Molotov cocktail and breaking into an ATM. Do the crime, do the time.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Boxcutter on a Silver Platter

I missed your stream of consciousness bullet points at the end. Don't let a lady having a bad day change your style. I've had bad days too and I gave the universe and its inhabitants permission to ignore any and all comments I make during those beast-days. But I enjoy your point of view, whatever you decide to do.
