The Streisand effect

Go look it up.


Dear police: This image is posted for the purposes of political criticism and satire. If you don't like it, tough - we have freedom of speech in this country, and you'll need a better law than the one you threatened Bomber with to get me to take it down.

Meanwhile, if anyone wants to do a "and then I threatened to arrest them unless they shut up" version, I'd love to host that.

(I will note: this poster isn't quite how I'd make the point. "...and we did nothing" would probably have been better. But the police don't want you to see it and are threatening people for posting it, and I think that trumps my taste here)
