111. Greg Palast complained about being harassed for taking photos of oil refineries on the Gulf Coast --
the argument against him was that he was showing terrorists where these refineries are located-- or something idiotic like that. Palast said he was aided by powerful friends who made some calls and the dogs were called off -- but it's scary to know that evidence can be contrived to ruin you if authority figures make you a target.

Best of luck to you.... and please keep us updated, although your attorney probably won't want you to talk about this case until it's settled.

Best of luck to you.
