While doing a little Googling this afternoon I came across this.
Oh. My. God.
Can you say RCOB? (Red Curtain of Blood for the uniniated...)
By the third paragraph I was starting to get pissed. By the fifth, I was livid. And by halfway through the article, I was ready to throw my computer out the window.
What kind of petty tyrannical BS is this? Just sitting here trying to put this outrage into words, I'm getting pissed all over again.
Arresting a man because his daughter drew a picture of her Dad with a gun? Have we lost our ever-loving minds?
So in all this, how do you charge someone with possession of a firearm because their daughter drew a damn picture? Can someone explain this to me?
And to top it all off, after being cuffed, led out of his daughters school in handcuffs, violated by a strip search, kept in the dark for several hours about why he's been arrested, had his children taken from him, they want him to sign a piece of paper absolving them of any wrong doing by authorizing the search....AFTER THE FACT!
I find it telling this article doesn't allow comments, as I believe their server would have melted down after word of this got out.
I'll tell you one thing, I wouldn'tve signed that piece of paper if they had a gun to my head. After all that, my name would be on the city hall because I would be owning me some local government.
And just put perfect to the whole article, it's in Canadia. That sure explains a lot, but still.
