Trooper McKenney is demanding $1,350,000 in compensation from Cox, who runs the Virginia CopBlock website.

[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
We've recently discussed at length the subpoena and gag order issued by the Assistant US Attorney over some tasteless, but innocuous, comments made by Reason readers. Anyone who's spent any time in comment sections would have seen these comments as nothing more than the internet being the internet -- a place where hyperbole and stupidity very often outweighs thought and nuance. The comments are being treated as serious t... (more)
