Would you support direct action against abortion clinics? Or it is only "freedom of assembly" if it is politically correct and trendy?
On Slashdot, one can get modded "troll" for pointing out that people shouldn't be considered guilty without at least _some_ evidence. "I bet" does not count as evidence.
A DDoS should be punished with community service; its no different from protesting a store you dislike and making it hard for customers to get in.
Double-standard: if it is done against abortion, then it is fundamentalist bigotry and we need stricter bubble zones, even if it is peaceful and non-coercive. If it is done in support to a trendy, politically correct cause such as animal rights then it is freedom of speech and freedom of assembly, even if it is coercive.
I bet if the "suspect" was named "John Smith" and white he might not have been arrested.
You say that based on what evidence?
I'm surprised that didn't make it into the summary.
I thank Slashdot for not click-whoring that badly (at least this time).
