Picture of the Day

In 1970, Jane Fonda was arrested on spurious drug smuggling charges while travelling around the country working to bring an end to the Vietnam War. (For complete details, click here. For a short history of the raised fist salute, click here.)

Below: A 2009 photo of Rosario Dawson carrying a small purse with Fonda's mug shot on it.)

The complete mug shot 
I'm not sure why, but it appears that they took mug shots of Fonda two days in a row.

As an added bonus, here's a album cover photo of John Lennon giving the raised fist salute. I don't think he had been arrested or anything.
