[QUOTE=TXduckdog;514731]You know, folks always lump all this stuff together without ever breaking down the reason and background for such actions. Most of which are restricted for use in cases involving national security and the war on terrorists.
Please explain how a 70 year old double-war veteran wearing an antiwar t-shirt at a presidential speech poses a threat to our national security???
The actual crime he was arrested (detained) for was failing to comply with law enforcement who was trying to herd him into a cordoned off "free speech zone" that was out of camera view.
As convenient as it may be to lump all these assaults on our God-given rights into a ball of "national security" and sweep it under the rug, I will not give up my rights so easily.
Was it Ben Franklin who said, "those who would trade liberty for security, deserve neither!" ?
