23. But they were.


They were only too happy in Watertown to surrender their 4th Amendment rights. When we questioned the actions of the police, the people "closer" to the event said they had the only voices that mattered, because they were the ones there. So collectively, they surrendered their 4th Amendment rights, and it was their own.

These are the people who when they hear about illegal wiretaps, the first question they ask to those of us who object is what do you have to hide? When we object to stop and frisk, these are the people who ask what we have to hide. When we object to the totally nude scanners at the airports and some federal buildings, you know the question. They do get affected, and they're happy, because they think that by giving up those little things, after all they have nothing to hide, they'll be safe.

They do give up their own rights, and really resent the hell out of those of us who do object. After all, what do we have to hide?
