Missed It: Sympathetic Protest On Behalf Of Musa Kart & Other Jailed Journalists Broken Up Violently

This is a harrowing article to read, and makes news of aggressive charges against a group of Turkish journalists including cartoonist Musa Kart that much more despairing. All of my impressions about what's going on with this horrible set of activities is how easy the government has had it doing these things in what would normally think of as almost clownish levels of grim repercussion triggered. It's hard to believe your eyes; you have no choice but to believe your eyes. They just come get you; reality adjusts to fit. Unless something extraordinary happens, all of those people are going to jail for a long time on charges that represent an approach to law that crushes dissent like the heel of a boot mashes up worms.
