    An arrest for "criminal trespass" isn't the same as arresting a reporter for asking a question. In any case the law has to take its course on this, in, one would hope, an open manner.

    Politically it's a really stupid move.

    Maybe Rudy can have Ron Paul arrested next. That'd be one way to silence the questioners of Israel-first policies. Rudy probably has a Mossad detail.

    Lepacek is a freelance reporter only in the most generous definitions of the words. How or why CNN gave him credentials is anyones guess. He is a member of the 9/11 conspiracy crowd. Hardly to be taken seriously. His intent was to instigate a confrontation with Rudy and he succeeded.

    No no no. Not at all. I am merely pointing out his background. To simply call him a "freelance reporter" is disingenuous. He is a young man with an agenda. I would suspect that he has attempted to confront Giuliani in the past and that he is not unknown to Rudy. He is also a very strong supporter of Ron Paul, no matter what the article says:

    Matthew Lepacek's Meetup Groups:

    Manhattan+ Ron Paul Action Group NYC
    Matthew Lepacek is this group's The guy who made Drudge.

    Matthew Lepacek's Ron Paul 2008 profile

    Ron Paul for President - HQNH
    Matthew Lepacek's Ron Paul 2008 profile

    The NYC Ron Paul 2008 Meetup Group
    Matthew Lepacek's Ron Paul 2008 profile


    Again, not a reason to have him arrested, but it does make his motives suspect.

    No, the best thing Rudy could have done is ignore him. Having him arrested was not the right thing to do.

    Of course, there may be a history here we no nothing about...

    He was asking a question about a tape that has surfaced of Rudy saying the building is about to collapse well before it did.

    That is a legit question.

    Fox isnt exactly free of bias but no one kicks them out of Dem debates for asking questions that benifit their views.

    The guy had a press pass.

    That is a conspiracy freak question. Nothing legit about it unless you wear a tinfoil hat.

    I agree with Truthmatters. All that he had to do is answer the questions and challenge the press to present the evidence.
