American Justice

We've been engaged in a war on journalism in this country for quite some time.
Aaron Cantú, a staff writer at the Santa Fe Reporter, has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges that he participated in a riot while working as a journalist during protests in Washington, DC on Inauguration Day.

Cantú faces eight felony counts—including inciting a riot, rioting, conspiracy to riot and five counts of destruction of property. The grand jury handed up the indictment last week.


Cantú was not named specifically by prosecutors as the cause of any of the destruction, as some defendants were. Instead, the indictment named him as being present while the damage happened.

It's hard to believe that this made it past a grand jury. If he actually gets convicted, kiss your last freedoms goodbye.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
