The Hypocrisy of the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority

So apparently it’s not a crime for a Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority to tell a member of the public that they’re going to break their fucking face, but it is a crime for a member of the public to yell at an NFTA cop while on a public street during a anti-war protest. And if you do such a thing, you’ll be chased down by NFTA police, assaulted with pepper spray, and unlawfully arrested for practicing your First Amendment rights.

From BuffaloNews.com:

NFTA spokesman Doug Hartmayer said that neither Brodsky nor Russo would be disciplined. NFTA Director Kimberley Minkel defended Brodsky’s spraying of Buckley as “a use [of force] within our guidelines.” She called Brodsky’s actions in the bus terminal episode “a closed case. … We look at each event independently.”

Nothing but the finest heroes at the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority.

Check them out here, here, and here.

LA TACO also covered the protest.

I’ve been called a lot of things in my lifetime, some good and some bad.  But after the Espinoza video was released in 2010, a working photographer based in Los Angeles, who I thought was a friend, sent me an email calling me a fauxtog — ouch.

Hate this fauxtog more than the drunkk

So it’s a great feeling when you’re the only photographer to capture the most important moment of the anti-war rally that took place in Hollywood on March 19 — which was the arrests of 11 brave members of Military Families Speak Out for staging a sit-in at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.

The Vanishing Anti-War Movement

War, it seems, is a bipartisan venture, which is reflected by the fact that Democrats have a favorable view of Obama’s foreign policy, despite its remarkable similarity to George W. Bush’s foreign policy. And though there have been rumblings of antiwar sentiment from some on the Right, Republicans remain strongly in favor of an interventionist foreign policy.
