America The Police State

It's only gotten any press b/c it was Bob Dylan, just as the Gates arrest only raised a fuss because it was Henry Louis Gates Jr, but really, really -- wasn't this the country where that word free and that word citizen meant something?

Apparently, as a community, we've decided that the police are our owners now?  They can stop anyone they like on the street, demand proof of ID for any reason, and we're supposed to roll over on pain of a beating or being tasered?

That's the country we've decided we want to live in?
