Eight Members of RNC Activist Group Lodged with Terrorism Charges

Ramsey County prosecutors have formally charged eight members of a prominent activist group with conspiracy to riot in furtherance of terrorism. The eight members of the RNC Welcoming Committee are believed to be the first persons ever charged under the 2002 Minnesota version of the federal PATRIOT Act. The activists face up to seven-and-a-half years in prison. We speak with the father of one of those charged and the president of the Minnesota chapter of the National Lawyers Guild.

I-Witness Video Collective Forced Out of Living Space After Second Raid by St. Paul Police in Five Days

Police in St. Paul are being accused of continuing to intimidate a group of video makers that traveled to the Twin Cities to document police misconduct during the Republican National Convention. On Saturday, police raided a home where members of the I-Witness Video collective were staying. Members of the group were detained for over two hours. The building’s landlord forced the group to move out yesterday after police armed with batons and a battering ram entered their living space for a second time.

  9. Hel-lo,
    Sheriff Bob, prematurely”arrested the organizers”, so the ralliers had no leadership, with no leader’s, a rally turns into a mob.
    [personal opinion]
    {Sheriff Bob’s decision to remove the organizer’s created a vacuum, that could not be filled by a “New Leadership”, hence, Bob created the mob.
    Its upon Sheriff Bob, and his men to maintain order, not create dis-order, nor to try out the new homegrown radicalization act, and fancy new tools}
    Lawyer Nestor should use Sheriff Bob’s own words in court to prove whom created the disturbance[plenty of film, “I know it only tells 1/2 the story, unless that video is being used against U”.]
    Fifty Million for security,
    ten million liability insurance[someone knew]
    not a dime for education, or job creation[except prison guards], so how do U think, your helping your citizens/guest of your fine city?
    P.C. Arrest? That is a new one, and the judge’s allow this ? Elect a new judge, folks.
    “Law-n-order”! Pain compliance, forced obedience.
    Dogs[fear],
    horses[trample],
    riot police[harass],
    flash-bangs[scare every-body, including non participants],
    tear-gas[to whom it may concern, “asthma, copd attacks?”], I pray no one got to seriously ILL.
    chemical sprayers[ no fire hoses, citizens don’t like that, no mo],
    extra-long-baton’s[extra reach],
    tasers[torture],
    cuffs[protection],
    detention facilities,[don’t like the feces thrown, then give the incarcerated toilets privileges, officers].
    jack-boots[stomp, stomp],…etcetera… .
    sounds familiar, perhaps history has an example of what this is, the search & seizure,
    of your rights to Freely practice Liberty….

    “The anarchist are Holding Hostages” check the jail.
    A New Law, no mo citizens allowed to use video camera’s in public, too, damning to those whom “protect and serve”.
    If the charges are Fraudulently filed, the filing officer should be charged[obstruction of Justice], and made to pay restitution($), personally, not from Taxpayer’s whom did not approve of ” Fraud”, but did approve of legal actions.

    Officers whom make disability claims from their actions, and are proven to be fraudulent claims, should also be charged with the Fraud they’ve comitted. Stop wasting “Tax Dollars”.

    Evict all incumbents, Local to Federal.

    Vote by absentee ballot.
    Above is opinion only.
