Here is an amazing—but, unfortunately, all too believeable story—about a guy buying a game at Circuit City…and winding up in jail. For nothing more than obeying the law.

Holy smokes, that is scary. The officer's tactics are all too common in this country. As a child/ young man I was amused by what seemed an irrational fear of the police by my parents, my mom in particular. As I became older and understood better the extent of the abuse of police powers they and countless others suffered from in Cuba, I came to see her fear as one that is well founded.
Stories like these bring the stories that I have heard of Cuba in the old days stormin' back to mind. Where the h*ck are we headed for here in the land of the "free" and home of the neo-cons?!?

What's really depressing is reading the 500+ comments and seeing how many write things along the lines of, "Jeez, man, just show your damn receipt. Why bother? Even if you're right, you're just making things hard on yourself."
Someone pointed out the likelihood, judging from word choices, that most of those writers are in their early 20s or late teens, and therefore have only really been aware of the world in the past, say, seven or so years. So they don't recall what it was like before September 11th. And don't realize it's not supposed to be this way.
