The United States has been known as a beacon for civil liberties, except these days it seems those rights are being stripped away more and more. Police in Fort Benning, GA arrested RT correspondent Kaelyn Forde and cameraman Jon Conway at a rally that was protesting the SOA, however the two were doing their jobs as part of the press.
