I'm sure someone has posted this in my lonnnggggg absence but I am compelled to post it just in case

I found an article in Cosmo, of all places, on Cecily McMillan--Occupy Activist sentenced as a felon.

http://www.cosmopolitan.com/politics/a29775/cecily-mcmillan-grad-school-to-jail/

Amazing story that pretty much sums up the dangers of free speech in America.

More amazing is the light shone on those not "lucky" enough to serve brief sentences like McMillans and the inhumane treatment of women (maybe men too but this is a woman's story) in jail.
