Chickens as Enemies of the State (Or, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot???)

Well, not the chickens themselves, per se, but rather their keepers. Apparently if you drive your permiculture bus/house to Minnesota to spread education and goodwill, that makes you subject to search and seizure, under the most dubious of circumstances.

Thanks to Lisa Z for this week's bit of deeply alarming (and subverted) news. See the story at her blog.

Perhaps local law enforcement was afraid they'd show up with eggs and rotting vegetables to throw at the RNC? Really, now.


  1. Yea, I saw that. I hope against hope that's not who is going to (continue) to be in the W.H.

  2. Something is deeply, horribly wrong here. Stories like this need to get out to as many people as possible. The police in Minnesota are completely out of hand.

    I was up late last night following the trails of the Democracy Now/I-Witness Video/Food not Bombs arrests, and I'm pissed off. It won't be long before we see a resurgence of police and military violence against civilians. At some point in this election year, it's going to be Kent State all over again.
