During a speech in which Hillary Clinton condemned the actions of totalitarian governments in the Middle East, peace protester and former CIA analyst Ray McGovern was tackled and dragged from the room.  His crime was standing up and facing the back of the room while everyone else sat and faced the speaker.  He was bloodied and bruised, handcuffed, and put in a little cell.  Why was this not a bigger deal?  Did Jon Stewart talk about this? Democracy Now! covered the incident and interviewed McGovern. Watch it here. It's really chilling to watch the whole thing caught on tape: Clinton rattles on without missing a beat as an old man is violently accosted ten feet in front of her. She terrifies me.
