Twitter, Tortuga, and The Feds

Remember when everyone praised Twitter and those brave Iranians tweeting for freedom?

The court required the government to show probable cause for the raid/search on Tortuga House. Instead, the pigs released a document that listed items confiscated from Tortuga House during the raid to support the validity of the search warrant that authorized the raid—which included photos taken by the FBI of anarchist stickers & posters.
So, the reason for a raid was the evidence of anarchist materials found during the raid? Wow, Minority Report.
Furthermore, Tortuga House was told they could question the validity of the search AFTER any indictments are handed out!

Wired has picked up on the raid and reported on it.
