Freedom Concerns


Documenting The Arrests Of Journalists In Ferguson

On Aug. 13, police in Ferguson, Missouri, assaulted and arrested two journalists for allegedly failing to exit a McDonald’s quickly enough while on a break from covering the protests. Since then, police actions against journalists in Ferguson have escalated in severity and frequency. Many have been tear gassed and shot with rubber bullets, and at least nine more have been arrested.

It should go without saying that these arrests are a gross violation of the reporters’ 1st Amendment rights, and attempts to prevent journalists from lawfully doing their job on the streets of Ferguson are downright illegal. Freedom of the Press Foundation documented each journalist arrest and is filing public records requests for the arrest records of the journalists who have been assaulted, detained and arrested in Ferguson. All requests are publicly available on MuckRock.

In Texas, Another ‘Why-You-Should-Never-Call-Police’ Moment

More and more, police have ruled themselves judge, jury and executioner. Unfortunately, another family has learned too late that you should never call police.

On Nov. 4, 2013, Michael Blair, a paranoid schizophrenic, suffered a delusional episode, grabbed a knife and claimed he wanted to kill himself. He locked himself in a bathroom. His family called 911.

While police were en route, a family member placed a cellphone in the hallway to monitor the police response. This video is the result. (Caution: Extremely graphic)

Al Gore And The Church Of The Global Warmists

The global warmists intend to fundamentally alter human society at the behest of a man who actually thinks he alone has a special insight into the inner workings of the universe. The People’s Temple worked the same way. Don’t drink the Kool-Aid.

The Regime’s Recovery Con

The Regime’s Recovery Con

Ah, the happy glow of phony numbers and a compliant mainstream media. President Barack Obama and his Democratic minions have mastered the art of deception in addressing issues such as the failures of Obamacare and vast abuses of Federal power. And with the media on their side, there’s no telling how deep the corruption goes.
