LIkewise, the routine police photographers were videotaping the lawful demonstrators non-stop, but ignored the violence by right wing thugs right next to them.

===2014-07-12 US: 10 Supreme Court Rulings That Turned Corporations Into People=== Last week's decision is the latest in a 200-year-long line of rulings giving businesses the same rights as humans. +++ I recall reading a while ago that already Justice Brandeis, noted that corporations were the primary beneficiary from the 14th amendment, not humans in Supreme Court rulings by his time...

And finally, one should note that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg referred to it in her Hobby Lobby dissent as "the notion of corporate personhood". Apparently, she too sees it as a fraud on the court, going on for over a century... jz +++ http://www.alternet.org/10-supreme-court-rulings-turned-corporations-people?akid=12012.1117888.VLHk-7&rd=1&src=newsletter1010949&t=9
