US Government Investigating Artists Who Protest?

The family of an outspoken member of a San Francisco hip hop band says the musician has allegedly been investigated by the US government. “The mother, whom Michale Franti declined to name for her safety, said plainclothes investigators appeared at her door on March 16, showing pictures of the band performing at an anti-war demonstration the previous day in San Francisco, Franti said. They questioned her about entries made in her son’s checking account, his travel records for the past several months, and his general whereabouts.”
