Blogger Defies Court, Stays in Jail

Linkfest Haven, the Blogger's Oasis

A blogger who filmed a protest in San Francisco is in jail because he has refused to turn the film over to the police per a court order. This blogger, Josh Wolf, fancies himself as some First Amendment crusader. I will leave that debate to the lawyers but it seems silly to me that he filmed a public event and will not release the tape. I understand some criminal acts took place and some people were hurt. In fact, a police officer received a fractured skull when one of the hooded thugs hit him with a pipe or a bat. It appears that the cops want to get the person who did it. Wolf evidently interviewed some of the protesters and they did not have their hoods on. The cops probably believe they can get a match by looking at clothing. I really don’t care but this strengthens my view that once protesters stop being peaceful they lose their protection and should be handled appropriately, including shooting them if they are violent. We will see on March 17th just how peaceful the anti-war crowd is down in DC. In any event, Wolf’s mother had this to say about why the police want the tape:

“Truthfully, I don’t think it’s even about the tape or the police car,” she says. “They want him to testify so they can develop a list of who protests in San Francisco.” WaPo

Give me a freaking break. The police already have a list of who protests in San Francisco. They call it the San Francisco White Pages.
