Suspect detained over 'extremist' bumper sticker

Suspect detained over 'extremist' bumper sticker: "A Louisiana driver was stopped and detained for having a 'Don't Tread on Me' bumper sticker on his vehicle and warned by a police officer about the 'subversive' message it sent, according to the driver's relative.

The situation developed in the small town of Ball, La., where a receptionist at the police department told WND she knew nothing about the traffic stop, during which the 'suspect' was investigated for 'extremist' activities, the relative said."


I'm feeling big huge safer. Just like each time the TSA confiscates my tooth paste and shaving lotion, one can never be too safe. Don't even get me started on the dangers of finger nail clippers. Sure I stink and arrive unshaven at my destination ... but wouldn't you rather be safe than sorry? Who knows where these bumper stickers can lead. Today bumper stickers, tomorrow letters to congress. Next thing you know people will be thinking that government is NOT the answer but is the problem. We can't have that.
