Amy Goodman Jailed at RNC

Amy Goodman was one of the few national journalists to follow the Saint Augustine Catholic Church takeover by students and local residents in New Orleans, spring 2006. I never met her, but we interviewed a lot of the same people.

I guess it's not too surprising that she and three other journalists would get arrested and roughed up at the Republican National Convention, but it's still more than a bit chilling. Essentially, they were arrested for covering the protests.
