“This is for your own good.”

Saw this tale of lost freedom referenced all over the place in Livejournal, I’m passing it on. This, my friends, is where we’re headed. Not only are you being searched illegally, the ‘arbitrary’ nature of the searches puts you under the whim of the searcher. If they don’t like something you have, not for any ‘safety’ reason – they just don’t like it, they can remove it from you. These laws (at least in boston) can allow that person to have you removed from the premeses or arrested if you disagree.
This person didn’t allow it to happen. How many others did?
[edit – btw, as this person did, I’ve added the ACLU direct number into my phone . I don’t want to be caught without some someone to call if I ever get into this situation]
