Scenes from a Cop Riot

Ann Arbor physician and a friend of this blogger, Dr. Catherine Wilkerson, has a new article out in CounterPunch entitled "Don't Come to Ann Arbor." The article is her eyewitness account of the violent repression of free speech at the University of Michigan last November. Elsewhere on this blog there is a video link and four posts on about those events (see links below). I've also taken the liberty of providing a couple of links related to Dr. Wilkerson's article.

It is clearly the case that the prosecution by Washtenaw County Prosecutor Brian Mackie's office of at least three of the anti-Zionist defendants--including Dr. Wilkerson--is purely politically-driven. Meanwhile, Mackie's office declined to bring charges against Beth Israel Congregation member Eli Avny despite the Ann Arbor Police Department's recommendation that Avny be charged with Assault with a Dangerous Weapon. Funny how that works.
