57. Why are people being treated like criminals in the first place?
Are you aware that citizens of other countries are now choosing to go on vacation to other places, many because of these kinds of abuses in the name of the so-called WOT? Tourism is down by 17%. In fact I have friends from Europe who will not come here anymore, and from Canada, because unlike the cowed citizens of this country, having been indoctrinated into submission by the scare tactics of their government, they do not accept being treated like cattle.

Why are YOU defending these people treating other human beings as if they were criminals? Did she threaten anyone, wave a weapon around, what exactly did she do to warrant this treatment. And I'm not talking about HER version of the story. Just what's in the edited tape should be a cause for concern in a free society.

You seem very willing to give up OUR rights to not be harassed by the government without good reason. If you want to do that, fine, but you don't speak for the rest of us. I hope she does sue. These abuses would be even worse, as they were when all this nonsense first started, had many citizens including a female member of Congress, not stood up against them.

It's disturbing how easy it was to get so many scared people to go along with giving up their rights just so they could 'feel safe'.
