Do you ever feel like you're NOT living in a police state?

Check out greencycles for a story of a man tasered at the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport, essentially for not following the police officer's inane orders, but ultimately for having the temerity to ride his bicycle at the airport.

Comment number 274 on the blog makes a sardonic point about the entire situation:

I could tell so many stories like yours..., about "the concrete stair case" which generations have been thrown down, into the basement for "processing"... then being told to clean up your own blood while officers jeer at you. I am not making this stuff up. It happens all the time... just not so much to articulate, educated but naive guys with a bit of entitlement clouding their vision and an amusing blog.

Wow! I hope he sues the cops, so they'll learn not to do this to other people.
