The last, and only person mistakenly persecuted under the patriot act was awarded 115 million dollars in damages. Tax free. They can violate my rights any time they want.

That kid in Revere, who's picture was published in the NY Post and alleged as the bomber? You know, by the media? He'll probably be worth more than the entire Bruins roster. And deservedly so.

The kid they have in custody now? Who's been deprived of his rights? He's not some innocent goat herder.
