The Battle in St. Paul: RNC Day One

No time to say much about it, but suffice it to say, Day One of the RNC was insane. It's shocking to see a normally sleepy town -- home of A Prairie Home Companion, no less -- clouded by teargas and black-clad riot police. I'm proud of the way the Minnesota Independent is covering it and encourage you to drop by and see our coverage -- from the overwhelming number of peaceful demonstrators to the handful of violent "anarchist" protesters to the startlingly large army of cops who wield billy clubs, teargas cannisters, rubber bullets and pepper spray. These shots were taken by my colleague Jeff Severns Guntzel, whose coverage for us is unsurpassed. His rundown of Day One.
