A Personal View of Last Night’s Events

I fully support the actions in support of our mutual friend whom was arrested last night. My post is cautionary, but should not be read as a discouragement of what we are doing…because I know that she is — and by extension that we are — right.

I think it is unfortunate that my friend has to go through all this. She has to tell to people that she was arrested, explain why, and somehow convince them that it wasn’t her fault…which it wasn’t. And, whether she wants to be or not, she is now a poster-child in our most recent “F- the state” efforts. While there can be perks to this last bit (e.g., becoming a minor-celebrity), that status neither pays bills nor protects privacy.
