I could have sworn this was already posted, but after a look, I couldn't find the thread. Maybe this one will stick.
The fact that your government can now investigate, detain, etc, without prior authorization, no form of checks from the public domain... this should
give you a clear indication of the trend path your government is following.
It's an easy rut to fall into, to desire ultimate power over people. This seems to be the rut the US government is falling into lately.
They want to be able to dictate everything to you, and anyone who disagrees, they want to be able to eliminate.
Sure, they tell you it's for your safety... but it's not your safety their interested in, it's theirs. Security to a government means the ability

... and besides, your government will have given you a nice excuse to help you sleep at night... that man was a terrorist. (Sure, you know he wasn't,
but you do need to sleep at night.)
Power through fear.
And it's only just getting started.
