David Sirota asks: Is Denver a police state?
David Sirota was disappeared from KHOW last month -- but that doesn't mean he's done communicating about Denver. His new report for Salon asks the question, "What Does a Police State Look Like?" -- and the Mile High City is his answer. He not only goes after the Denver Police Department (for its alleged brutality), but also officials (for defending civil-rights violations, among other things). And then there's the Denver Post, which he slaps for suggesting that outlawing armed police drones might be "a step too far." Sirota no longer has a radio platform, but he's far from silent.
