Federal agents’ visit was a hoax – SouthCoastToday.com
The UMass Dartmouth student who claimed to have been visited by Homeland Security agents over his request for “The Little Red Book” by Mao Zedong has admitted to making up the entire story.
The 22-year-old student tearfully admitted he made the story up to his history professor, Dr. Brian Glyn Williams, and his parents, after being confronted with the inconsistencies in his account.
Had the student stuck to his original story, it might never have been proved false.
So yet again, the only “innocent” claimed by “excesses” of the Patriot Act is victimized by his own paranoia. I’ve yet to see a real, documented case of anyone, who isn’t breaking the law or here illegally, having their “civil liberties” violated by the Patriot Act. Or wiretapping.
If you aren’t doing anything illegal, are in this country legally and aren’t calling your al-Qaeda friends overseas, you don’t have anything to fear. Except the scare tactics of Democrats.
