Crimincal case against CT blogger who took pics of Gov at parade dismissed

This case is another example of ridiculousness. For goodness sakes, America, get a grip. People are news consumers, news makers and news gatherers. This is the 21st century. Get used to it already and stop wasting scarce resources on prosecuting people for doing things that we used to only hear about as being prohibited in third world countries ruled by dictators.

FYI – the alleged offending party (the alleged criminal) is a law student and known political activist. He’s considering whether to file a wrongful arrest lawsuit.

Hattip to Society for Professional Journalists (of which I’m a member, yes, three years going on four), and the Hartford Courant.
