OWS — Welcome to the “Frozen Zone”.

Mother Jones reporter Josh Harkinson was one of the few who got to see any of the Zuccotti Park evictions. He was assaulted (my words not his) by an NYPD riot cop who removed him to the press gallery (away from the park).

“Why are you excluding the press from observing this?” I asked.

“Because this is a frozen zone. It’s a police action going on. You could be injured.”

His meaning was clear. I let myself be hustled across the street to the press pen.

Welcome to the new language of the American Fascisti. “Frozen Zone” indeed.
