Anger

This article gives me so many reasons to be angry. From the "Free Speech Zone" to the targeted arrest for non-criminal behavior. Government theft of private property for "evidence".

Basically, a general collection of the NYPD being idiotically fascist.

But, the real "topper" for me is this quote:
While Brown said the intelligence documents were innocent, he added that the police do not want the court to release them because the information could reveal how the police department makes decisions.


Read that last part again. No, wait, let's just repeat it right here. "...the police do not want the court to release them because the information could reveal how the police department makes decisions."

God forfend that the public know how the police make decisions. Why on Earth should the tax-payers, who directly or indirectly pay for every single dime spent on police activity have the foggiest idea how the cops think. That's just crazy talk. This is for our protection after all.

Bullshit. Look, there are some secrets the police can keep. Wide reaching operations that demonstrate an Orwellian disregard for "innocent until proven guilty" (the cornerstone of jurisprudence), the First Amendment and the Fourth are not among them.
