As you may have heard, last week Roger Shuler of the Legal Schnauzer blog was arrested
by Shelby County sheriff's deputies on the orders of Rob Riley as rubber-stamped by a Roy Moore-appointed special judge in a sealed proceeding. At issue is Shuler's reporting on allegations that Riley had an affair with a lobbyist, leading to her divorce and an abortion. Shuler is still in jail with no bond. His friends have started a legal defense fund at Rally.org.
Responding to this Kafkaesque situation yesterday, I carried out a successful mission to deliver supplies to Mrs. Shuler and make a photographic and video record of the scene where her husband was arrested by Shelby County deputies. Many thanks to Mrs. Shuler for her courage and hospitality. Here are the images from the scene of Mr. Shuler's arrest, which was still untouched when I arrived. The video is on the flip:
