  • Comment. Well... newspaper sources are typically considered to be reliable sources that can help show notability and to be honest, there shouldn't really be anything in here that isn't sourced by one thing or another. We also don't delete something because it's old news. If someone or something achieves notability per Wikipedia guidelines, that notability does not go away over time. (Unless the standards tighten up and they don't meet the new guidelines, that is.) I cleaned the article up a little and took out a few things, but I'm more worried that this didn't get enough coverage to count as notable. I'll see what else I can find or if this can be mentioned somewhere else on Wikipedia with this name as a redirect. It's big enough that it got quite a bit of coverage, but not enough to where it clearly isn't just a case of WP:ONEEVENT.Tokyogirl79 (talk) 12:08, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
I agree with the WP:ONEEVENT not making the person notable; however, from the brief research I did I see that he is an outspoken activist. The arrest would be an event surrounding his activism and his activism is what I believe would make him notable (not that every activist deserves a Wikipedia, but the most notable ones that get arrested for what he did probably do). Just a thought....I'm moving on. --Morning277 (talk) 14:06, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Keep - The claim of notability is in the article and supported by citations. Regardless of the citations being in print or online, they are still citations. The notion that the article should be deleted based on the citations being from newspapers is rediculous. Google the name followed by "arrest" and there are plenty of online sources. Just a note to Fedgetrashmore - it is always good to check out sources to see if they exist prior to making a Rfd. --Morning277 (talk) 14:06, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
