    Are you allowed to read warrants pertaining to you?

    it's sad that the world is becoming a police state. every country is becoming like this. citizens no longer have unalienable rights. the so-called democratic state has changed and people don't even realize it. the system is now corporate fascism policed by the military industrial complex. the corporate dictatorship sees citizens as nothing more than expendable assets of the fascist state.

    Definitely have issues with this. If the kid is an Islamist, then he'll vanish - but it sounds like the Feebs have been caught with their wangs in their hands and are trying to use threats to get out of it.

    Craigslist sounds like an excellent idea.

    wow. that's a little ****ed up. this makes me wonder why did they do that unless they were doing racial profiling or whatever it's called.

    I'm sure the ACLU is already all over this.:coffee:

    Depending on the reason for the warrant (or lack thereof) this is either disgraceful or overblown.

    I'm pretty sure, though, anything installed into your car is yours. I don't think the FBI had a right to demand it back.

    I could be wrong, but if a police/fbi/etc "request" is followed by a threat, then there's a pretty good chance that they don't have the legal right.

    We don't know why they were watching him. If there's a good reason, then good; they should watch him for a while, and when they see that their information was inaccurate, they should stop watching him. If they didn't have a good reason, well I hope something is done, but that may not happen. And obviously if their information was good and they have caught someone who intended to do harm, then good; they're doing their jobs well.

    I realize law enforcement needs some leeway to conduct their investigations, and it's inevitable that they'll overstep their bounds a little from time-to-time (they are human after all), but I hope that if this was illegal, then someone loses their job or policies are changed in a meaningful way.

    Wow. If something like that happened to me, I wouldn't be able to stop myself from having some fun with the situation. The main guy's friend had the right idea when he said "put it on another car". I could think of a variety of different things, but for the sake of plausible deniability, I'll say no more. :smug:

    That's just priceless! :rolf:

    I do a good Towelie impression. It's just Herbert from Family Guy with a smoker's rasp. :) (and no sigmatism)

    Not necessarily. My guess is that they didn't want their superiors to find out about their faux pas, so they tried it in an inofficial manner. It might have become interesting if that guy demanded a receipt.

    Would be more interesting if he stuck it on the car of the mayor or something. :crazyeyes:

    Oh man, I do a perfect Towelie! It's such a shame too, cause I don't even smoke weed. :whistling:

    Oooh! I also do a perfect impression of Jigsaw from "Saw". "Would you like to play a game?"
