Joe Miller's Campaign Security Snafu



This has been making the rounds on the Intertubes all week and I never got a chance to comment on it.

Here is the backstory.

I think that the security guys were completely out of line.

Mind you, I think the folks from the Alaska Dispatch were acting kind of confrontational -- but that is no excuse to physically restrain this guy. Not to mention that it appears that these "security personnel" have no legal power to do such a thing. I am not a legal expert, but my guess is that Tony Hopfinger -- the man who was detained -- could have a very good wrongful detention suit on his hands.

The video and story is disturbing on many levels. Particularly as they relate to First Amendment issues.
