America sucks

And we all wonder why some kids turn to anarchy and "anti-authoritarianism." Having your hang-out raided and your picture systematically taken by police will do that.

Especially when, in response to your FUCKING OUTRAGE, you get some bullshit answer from the cops like: "The cause for the search warrant is not public at this time."

I don't care if these groups were the lowlifes at the Westboro Baptist Church -- you don't raid a community gathering spot with a secret search warrant. Ever. We just don't do those kinds of things in America. Remember? It's kind of in our Constitution.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
I want out. I didn't sign up for this bullshit.

And if any Maryland state police happen to read this, would you mind erasing any records of my existence you gathered while spying on me? It'd be kind of nice to fly again without always getting pulled aside and searched in that scary little room. Kind of humiliating, especially since it's pretty clear I'm not a terrorist. Thanks.
