The U.S. is not stopping you from reading Wikileaks
I work at a Department of Energy national lab (without nuclear weapons or other classified research). Wikileaks has been blocked since Tuesday, and we have all received a memo explicitly forbidding us from viewing the cables.
A video of the incident is available, from the records of the police vehicle.The victim of police brutality was a motorist named Jared Massey. Mr. Massey was pulled over on a Utah highway for allegedly speeding. When Mr. Massey asked the officer why he was being pulled over, and then to help him understand why he was accused of speeding before he signed the ticket, the officer ordered him to exit the vehicle. Mr. Massey was then asked to turn around and put his hands behind his back. Mr. Massey began walking back towards the car, obviously confused as to why he was being ordered to put his hands behind his back, and less than 10 seconds later was tased.
