Conservatives Get Arrested Different

Looks like he's having a good time

I've seen protesters get arrested before but this is different. The guy, John Ziegler, was "covering" the Annenberg School that was giving Katie Couric the Walter Cronkite journalism award, The Excellence in Furrowed Brow Award, or Highest Cheekbones for a Network Anchor, not sure which. But he's there to protest for her heinously unfair advocacyinterview with Sarah Palin six months ago. Ziegler does an annoying drunk reporter schtick and gets himself arrested just for being a dick. The police will always oblige if you want it bad enough. But watch how Ziegler cackles deliriously during the entire incident like he's having the most fun he's ever had. It's strangely entertaining. Contrast it with this video from the G-20 where innocent bystander, Ian Thomlinson, didn't have much fun at all.

I'm disgusted that he's getting escorted off what looks like a public pathway for asking questions. I can understand his laughing; it isn't out of having fun, it's out of disbelief over this totally ridiculous treatment.

I don't care if he's conservative, liberal, moderate... it doesn't matter. We need people asking questions regardless of political beliefs. That's the core of our freedom: information.
