FBI Questioning Political Demonstrators

The FBI questions political protesters to learn more about the potential for violence at this summer's political conventions. The FBI says potential crimes, not political expression, sparked its interest in the Democratic Convention, held last month. The Republican National Convention begins Aug. 30 in New York. NPR's Larry Abramson reports.
