Mormons do the dumbest things...
2001-12-12 06:58:39 PM  
Fb- is the father
2001-12-12 06:58:44 PM  
Hey i dident write weeners!
2001-12-12 06:58:59 PM  
Pssh, he CLAIMS he didn't enjoy the cavity searches...
2001-12-12 06:59:15 PM  
Drew what is up wit the weeners thing!!???
2001-12-12 07:00:15 PM  
OK, they weren't Mormons. But Morms still suck.

Lets get down to brass tacks.

How much for the ape?
2001-12-12 07:05:03 PM  
Actually they were Quantum Presbyterians.
2001-12-12 07:06:45 PM  
Police lie under oath. I've seen it.
2001-12-12 07:08:27 PM  
Damn....ain't life a biatch in the good old USA. The cavity searches were payment for the interest free loans they received from our government to start their business.
2001-12-12 07:10:50 PM  
What?? A law enforcement agency made a mistake?? Well damn, I'm moving to canada.

I do feel bad for the guy and his kids though, that sucks. Get Al Sharpton to pay them some money...
2001-12-12 07:11:04 PM  
I once went on a trip in Tiajuana.
2001-12-12 07:11:56 PM  
I bet they're guity of something.

Bukkake- Hey, what's a Quantum Presbyterian? Did I miss something? That sounds neat. I want to be one! What is it?
2001-12-12 07:14:08 PM  
Quantum Presbyterians believe g0d is everywhere at once, moving mysteriously, until you look for him, at which point he collapses into Pat Buchanan's black hole.
2001-12-12 07:15:09 PM  
Or whoever the guy is called.
2001-12-12 07:16:03 PM  
What a bunch of god damn farking idiots. An extra layer of lamination? Oh no, they must be terrorists!


Those assclowns that held them up for no good reason should be fired and blacklisted.
2001-12-12 07:17:05 PM  
I was going to launch into a tirade against the american gov't for unjustly persecuting Middle-eastern decendants after the 9/11 attacks. However, that would be rather hypocritical considering what my gov't did to the Japanese during WWII.

So I will just say, that's a shame for those guys and I commend them for keeping their cool thru it all. Seems to me that most people would be suing the bejezuz out of every one in sight after an experience like that...tho they still might.

oh never mind
2001-12-12 07:17:11 PM  
OcterDoctopus: I'll bite. Why do you hate Mormons, other than "they suck"?
2001-12-12 07:17:22 PM  
How do you starve a mexican?

Hide his food stamps under his work boots.
2001-12-12 07:19:52 PM  

Yes, thank you, I see that now! g0d has even been in Tiajuana at once! I believe!
2001-12-12 07:22:15 PM  
Boy, I sure wish that France would just surrender!
2001-12-12 07:22:25 PM  
Goshdarn racial profiling!
2001-12-12 07:24:18 PM  
If terrorists cause this much stupidity, fark has already won the dumbass battle.
2001-12-12 07:25:32 PM  
I wish I could be part of this lawsuit. It is gonna be BIG! Can we say false arrest?
2001-12-12 07:27:29 PM  
Agnosto- didn't the dad say he wasn't gonna blame them?
2001-12-12 07:29:10 PM  
Man, that really sucks. Who knows how much of this sort of intimidation goes unreported. Racist government goons.

Beezulbob- Quantum Presbyterians is from the Simpsons. In a Halloween episode the aliens come to the Simpsons door and Homer says "Oh no, Mormons." Kang says Actually we're Quantum Presbyterians but that's beside the point." read a couple of posts back.
2001-12-12 07:31:17 PM  
"...Nacer Mustafa remains angry at those who arrested him, saying they lied under oath."

Lied about what? Were charges filed against the agents?
2001-12-12 07:32:55 PM  
Thank nazi Asshcroft for his turning the constitution into toilet paper. We are so farked. They are coming for us next.
2001-12-12 07:37:29 PM  

You just ain't right.
2001-12-12 07:38:37 PM  

I took that to mean that those who arrested him accused him and his father of lying under oath.
2001-12-12 07:40:21 PM  
Can someone who knows how to put up jpgs to get around the filters tell me what word or phrase filters into 'weeners'?
2001-12-12 07:40:39 PM  
Yeah, that now makes the second and third US citizens persecuted by our government because they are of arab heritage after 9/11. And it is not so much that they were falsely arrested, it is the fact that they were held with out charges for weeks on end. Then given free government prostate exams. And finally after the harrowing experience was over not even apologized to, just sent on their way.

The government is not acting the way the framers of the constitution intended it to. And they are likely rolling in their graves right now.
2001-12-12 07:43:09 PM  
One good thing about this: it's nice to see that their hillbilly neighbours are on their side.
2001-12-12 07:44:39 PM  
Bukkake- Darn. Everytime I try to do something really stupid, it's already been done on the Simpsons.

By "a couple of posts back", I hope you don't mean that gigantic pic Saton posted that everyone is pretending isn't there.
2001-12-12 07:45:19 PM  
someone needs to delete that anal cavity pic.

2001-12-12 07:47:41 PM  

Why weren't they apologized to? Because to do so would be a tacit admission that the detention was unlawful. Such an admission goes pretty far in front of a jury when damages are being requested based upon false arrest/unlawful detention/selective prosecution charges. Regardless of what you think about the detention, or the circumstances surrounding it, that's why: there is some risk adverse consultant out there battening down the hatches.

In terms of the framers of the constitution rolling over in their graves, I'll not yet take a stance, and instead ask only a question: are you an originalist, in the vein of J. Scalia? What specifically in the big C do you refer to?
2001-12-12 07:48:29 PM  
Dcho, yeah that is kind of a weird... you would expect small town farks like that to be more likely to persecute their neighbors for being different.
2001-12-12 07:49:09 PM  
It's gone now. I think the mods deserve a laurel and hardy handshake for doing a good job today!
2001-12-12 07:53:22 PM  
Give me a break.. I was just trying to get a rise.....IT WORKED
2001-12-12 07:58:11 PM  
IT's TIJUANA not Tiajuana!
2001-12-12 07:58:59 PM  
Beezulbob since you are from LA I thought that pic would turn you on.
2001-12-12 08:00:13 PM  
stupid troll.
2001-12-12 08:05:56 PM  
Way to go Ashcroft!!!!
Get them towelheads!!!!
2001-12-12 08:10:03 PM  
Drew, please keep an eye out for updates on this. If ever a man should sue, this is the guy. The feds had no proof, no reasonable suspicion, and sounds like they were harrassing the shiat out of them. I can't believe they were held that long - the feds couldn't call the guy's wife? Check with the IRS? Do a quick background check (sounds like that town is small enough, it should have only taken a day or so)?
2001-12-12 08:13:49 PM  
There ya go, border patrol... even with legal documents we need to see if there's an extra milimetre of lamination on those licences and passports; then after we get done with that, we're going to hold our fellow citizens in jail for months for no aparent reason other than "The asshole looks like a terrorist". Damnit, what's with the US lately and its parinoia????

I gotta knife in my house, am I now a farking terrorist? Sheesh.

2001-12-12 08:32:55 PM  
if a father and son can't make a run to the border for a little poon then... TTHAW.
2001-12-12 08:33:33 PM  
yo marq, what'd the Canadians do the japanese?

I didn't know the canadians did stuff. I though they just hung and drank maple syrup or something.
2001-12-12 08:42:14 PM  
Do you smell that odor in the air? Mmm, tasty! I love a well burned Constitution in the morning!
