This Is Definitely Not What Democracy Looks Like

Wow. After a "citizens' arrest" by a security guard for a building largely owned by Goldman Sachs, police obligingly arrested political activist and Democratic congressional candidate Ray Lutz - in Freedom Plaza, home to Occupy San Diego - for registering voters. Or refusing to move his little table for registering voters. Or maybe just breathing, 'cause hell, at this point, who knows. After Lutz got hauled off, other activists took up where he left off, and miraculously managed to register over 30 voters without getting arrested, maybe because by then the police were too embarrassed to show their faces. Lutz is suing, which for now you're still allowed to do.
