Internet freedom threat, ex-OPD cop executes Boston Bombing associate, Manning denied prison safety

Abby Martin talks about the Army’s review of Chelsea Manning’s request for gender reassignment surgery and her potential transfer from a military to civilian prison, where there are much more threats to her safety. Cody Snell reports on the demonstrations at the FCC over the recent ruling that erodes Net Neutrality. Casey Rae, director of Future of Music Coalition talks about what a post-neutral internet would look like to independent artists and musicians. We revisit the case of Ibragim Todashev, an associate of the Tsarnaev brothers, and the fact that the identity of the FBI agent who executed Todashev has finally been revealed - a sociopathic ex-Oakland police officer with a tarnished history of unlawful beatings and arrests. Finally, journalist and activist Keane Bhatt discusses a recent open letter he and many prominent figures signed calling for the non-profit organization Human Rights Watch to close its revolving door with the US government.
