Has the US become a "police state" ... or are we just rapidly heading in that direction? Law professor Francis Boyle says we're already there, and it is dissenters--not "terrorists"--who are being targeted by the state. And we'll look at two recent reports documenting illegal and often violent acts by the New York Police Department--(1) in their CIA-assisted spying on Muslim citizens and (2) in their harassment of law-abiding Occupy Wall Street protesters.
