It can, and does, happen here

On March 20th, Mike Hawash, an American of Middle Eastern descent, was detained as a material witness by FBI agents. The agents accosted him in the parking lot of the Intel Hawthorne Farms facility where Mike works as an engineer.

Since that date he has been held in federal prison in Sheridan OR. More information at a web site created and maintained by his friends and co-workers.

Though I do not know Mike personally, people I deeply respect vouch for him without reservation. Take a look at the picture on his web page. Think about someone you love who may be a little vociferous on the issue of palestinian statehood, the immorality of our current war, or even, god forbid, question the perspicacity of our President.
