Legal "Support" for Protestors

Pablo | Legal support for civil liberties and protestors must improve. No one should be counseled to in effect admit wrong-doing and take an ACD thereby risking reopening their case in the event of future arrest and reducing the likelihood of success in a civil suit. False arrest should not result in admissions of guilt or risks being assumed of any sort. more...  19 Comments

Non-US Citizens Arrested

1Planet1People | This is a question instead of a report. I know many non-citizens were rounded up during the protests, many of them mere tourists in the wrong place at the wrong time. Does anyone know what happened to them? Were they released? I saw a video with a French woman who spoke little English. I can't help but thinking about her and wandering if she got out safely. more...  3 Comments

NYC Demonstrator Prison Bought and Paid For by RNC

Me | It now has come to light the Republican National Committee - NOT the City of New York - leased the Pier 57 facility and arranged for its use as a prison for peaceful demonstrators unlawfully rounded up by police. The parents of one illegally detained demonstrator made the discovery after checking with the NYPD to find out who was managing Pier 57, and was told the Certificate of Occupancy and Fire Safety Inspection Certificate were issued to the Republican National Committee. more...  22 Comments

One Hearing, Three Headlines: NYC Media Drops Ball on RNC Arestee Case

Chris Anderson | Protesters (and the hundreds of ordinary folks) arrested during the Republican Convention last week can be excused for feeling confused when they looked at the New York media this morning.

There were at least three different summaries of Thursday's hearing, during which State Supreme Court Justice John Cataldo ruled on the status of his order holding the City of New York in contempt of court for keeping prisoners in jail for too long.

"Judge Lifts Contempt Charge For Holding Protestors Too Long," said NY1.

"Judge Keeps City on Notice Over Convention Protest Arrests,", wrote the Times.

It was Newsday that provided the most accurate reporting on the hearing. "Judge Lifts Contempt Order Against City but Orders New Hearing," read the headline. At last, clarity ... sort of. "A judge who cited the city for contempt last week for disobeying his order to free hundreds of jailed Republican National Convention protesters lifted the charge Thursday but scheduled another hearing on whether to reinstate it."
