Police raid on RNC Welcoming Committee HQ

The headquarters of a well-known activist group "RNC Welcoming Committee," which had plans to demonstrate at the RNC convention, was raided by police. Dozens of its members -- including a lawyer and a journalist -- were arrested. No weapons of any kind were found when the police stormed the house. As documented in a video, the Department of Homeland Security appears to have joined local police in carrying out the raid. A disturbing prospect. One member is interviewed here. And here is an another video made about the raid:

Update: check out this report from Glenn Greenwald, who is on the scene live-blogging.
