Shane Bauer is a journalist who, with Sarah Shourd and Josh Fattel, were kidnapped by Iranian border guards and imprisoned in solitary in Iran for many months. After his return to the US. Shane wrote about Pelican Bay, California’s notorious solitary confinement facility for inmates.

As he was observing one of the Urban Shield exercises as a official member of the press he was ordered to stop taking pictures and leave.

Urban Shield, a convention devoted to the glorification of the militarization of the police, has been happening in Oakland since 2007. The Mayor announced that it would not be held in Oakland next year, but it will still be held, probably somewhere else in Alameda County. It should be stopped once and for all or, barring that, Oakland and Oakland’s police should not participate.
