Federal Thugs Crackdown Copyright Infringement

Just in case anyone has any warm and cuddly feelings about the government being "we the people", we bring you this photo which demonstrates just exactly what happens to one of "we the people" when we are confronted by agents of the state.

The storm troopers shown above are members of the Beneficient Order of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (three legal products, the last time I checked....)

The poor fellow's "crime"? Looking "suspicious".
Jeremiah Ransom, a sophomore from Macon, was leaving a Wesley Foundation pirate vs. ninja event when he was detained.

After being held in investigative detention, he was found to have violated no criminal laws and was not arrested.

The most absurd aspect of this altercation?

Ransom was wearing black sweatpants and an athletic T-shirt with one red bandanna covering the bottom half of his face and another covering the top of his head, Williamson said.

“Seeing someone with something across the face, from a federal standpoint — that’s not right,” McLemore said, explaining why agents believed something to be amiss.

Now...when the BATF (or any other Federal Death Squad) raids a target, they are clad head to toe in black costumes, including masked faces. Apparently, the BATF doesn't like people running around in ninja costumes. That's a privelege they reserve for themselves.
