the endVia Radley Balko's blog, two other stories on Tennessee's multi-agency "anti-terrorism" operation that produced a bunch of traffic tickets and arrests on ordinary criminal warrants. Under the stunning headline, "Law Enforcement Crackdown on Terrorists," they ... it ...arrrgggggghhhhh!!!! Okay, just go look at the fucking stories.
"They are determining if and when they plan another round-up."
Because massive government "round-ups" are routine and unobjectionable.
And these astounding four paragraphs:
The FBI along with hundreds of officers said they are looking for anything out of the ordinary. Agents take computers and paperwork from businesses.While some business owners feel they are being targeted -- by armed government agents raiding their businesses and hauling off their property in a fishing expedition for "anything unusual" -- law-enforcement officers said they are just trying to track down possible terrorists before something big happens.
One store owner said he was told the agents were looking for stolen electronics. While some business owners feel they are being targeted, law-enforcement officers said they are just trying to track down possible terrorists before something big happens.
"What we have found traditionally is that terrorists are involved in a number of lesser known type crimes," said Mark Luttrell, Shelby County sheriff.

Motherfucking fuck. Stick a fork in us.
