A Washington Post editorial about Elisha Strom, who blogged about the Jefferson Area Drug Enforcement Task Force in northern Virginia with intensity and focus,
displaying officers' photos, their cars, and in one now-gone entry, one officer's home. For this on July 16 she was arrested.
Strom was jailed under a Virginia law that forbids publication of law-enforcement officers’ addresses or photographs with the “intent to coerce, intimidate, or harass.”
Unemployed, she has been unable to post the $7,500 bond, and remains in jail until her next court date on September 17.
Unfortunately, Elisha Strom and her estranged husband
are perhaps not the role models that civil libertarians might prefer.
