Here’s a video of a brave man standing up to armed government workers at one of the internal checkpoints that have been erected in the land of the “free.” The armed government workers demand that the man answer their questions – on the face of it, an obvious abuse of the right to remain silent, to not answer questions posed by armed government workers.
The armed government workers get around this by abusing the man – subjecting him to interrogation first and when that does not succeed in eliciting the answer (which they already know; more on that in a moment) they arrest him – including a degrading pat-down, as if he had committed a crime – and then dragoon him into their facility for forcible fingerprinting and several more hours of abuse.
Mind: The man was merely traveling down the road in his car; had committed no offense nor given any reason to suspect him of having committed one. But the armed government workers – in an inversion of both decency and what used to be decent law – assert that his failure to answer their questions, contrary to his right not to answer them, constitutes “suspicion” in and of itself – and that gives these creeps the necessary pretext to do, essentially, as they wish to him and by implication any other person who crosses their path.
What makes this even more despicable is that the creeps – most of whom appear to have at least moist backs themselves – know perfectly well that this man is, in fact, a citizen. A middle-aged white male who speaks perfect English – unlike themselves.
What they are doing here, then, is making a point. Making an example of the man. Punishing him for daring to affront their authority – which is the real “crime” here.
