Journalist Arrested For Defacing Anti-Islam Poster

An Egyptian-American activist was arrested by the NYPD on Tuesday and charged with criminal mischief and graffiti for spray-painting an advertisement in a New York subway station that had been viewed as hateful to Muslims.

Mona Eltahawy, 45, was detained by officers with the New York Police Department and held overnight after her attempts to cover-up an anti-Islamic advert in a Manhattan subway station yielded a minor scuffle with a woman who insisted on shielding the poster with her own body.

    Journalists shitting on free speech when it's speech they didn't write and don't support is about as surprising as priests shitting on free religion when it's a different religion they dislike.
