Ladies And Gentlemen, Welcome to your police state. We don’t engage in actual criminal investigation, or in the kind of counter-terrorism work that we pay so many of our tax dollars for. No, instead we lock up people based on nothing more than the accusations of others. No judge, No jury, just a whole society of americans so scared of their own shadow, that they’ll turn in people just for saying things they don’t agree with, if they were even said at all. And call me crazy, but I cant help but notice that the guy has the 3-name thing AND looks like alot like Timothy Mcveigh. Could be just coincidence, but how many things are in this country?…..
