Susie Cagle is a colleague of mine. Full disclosure: I'm syndicated through Cagle Cartoons, her father's gig.

Susie a dedicated journalist who's been diligently covering Occupy Oakland for weeks now. Before the nation was paying attention - Susie was there. Last week she was tear gassed on the job - this week she was arrested.

I'm going to talk with her later today about her arrest. I wanted to put this up here now. Our Nicolle Belle has been down in Oakland. I've personally been to five Occupations in two countries. Susie Madrak has been at Occupy Philadelphia and Occupy St. Pete. We've been going there to tell the story of the people down there. Arresting a journalist is unacceptable. It's intimidation and it's wrong.
