2012 RNC: Fear Mongering, Undercover Cops & the Corporate Media

From Jacob Crawford / indybay.org/RNC2012.

It’s not uncommon to see to police and FBI raids on political organizers in the months, weeks, and days leading up to presidential conventions. Media coverage about lawbreakers and anarchy dominate the air waves, allowing police to be more heavy-handed towards people demonstrating. a251
