Tom Tomorrow passes on a first-person account of the treatment of New York City protestors from a woman who got arrested and held for 49 hours, despite not actually being a protestor. Now I can understand why the police netted her (literally!), but it’s hard to justify what happened to her, her friend, and the actual protestors.

Added 2004-09-06: A similar tale from Eddie Codel, a reporter for Indymedia who was falsely arrested and held for forty hours. (via Mark Frauenfelder)
