Vick Plots To Blow Up Plane With Pot

ESPN radio tells us that some Airport Stormtroopers wanted to take a look at Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick's water bottle. He was reluctant to give it up, and when they did look at it they found a secret compartment that held residue of what smelled like marijuana. As of this time, the incident is apparently under investigation.

What the hell did these Homeland Security goons expect Vick would do? What right do they have to take away people's water bottles? Is Atlanta's most prominent citizen a suspected terrorist? If not, why not just leave him alone?

Vick may have exercised poor judgment, yada yada yada. But then let's blame the rape victim for wearing a short skirt.

This is further proof of what the War on Terror is really about. It's about giving the State unlimited power to detain and harass American citizens, and to authorize War on Terror tactics to expose non-Terror related, victimless "crimes."

Vick may be an idiot, but he's still a victim.
