Submission + - FBI - Reading Material Suspicous - Man Questioned (creativeloafing.com)

proudfoot writes: "The FBI questions a "dark haired, bearded" man, based off a tip off that he was reading something suspicious. They managed to find his mother, and from her, tracked him down. The reading material in question? Hal Crowther's "Weapons of Mass Stupidity" from the Weekly Planet, a free independent out of Tampa, an article that criticizes the actions of the current administration.

From the agent involved: "In this post-911 era, it is the absolute responsibility of the FBI to follow through on any tips of potential terrorist activity," Parris says. "Are people going to take exception and be inconvenienced by this at times? Oh, yeah. ... A certain amount of convenience is going to be offset by an increase in security.""
