To Quote Harry Callahan...

Well, I'm all broken up over that man's rights!

Convicted shoe bomber Richard C. Reid claimed in a handwritten federal lawsuit in Colorado that the government violated his First Amendment rights by restricting his access to books, TV, phone calls, letters and religious activities. In June, the Department of Justice - without explanation - lifted those restrictions.


Below are some of the limits placed on Reid, according to his 2007 lawsuit, in which he claimed: “There is no sound reason or justification” for the restrictions.

Denied timely access to news articles and TV or radio news stations. Access limited to newspapers that were one month old, sometimes with articles missing.

How's this for a "sound reason"?


This piece of shit should have been beaten to death (twice) by the people he tried to kill that day. Instead, at the rate we're going in what used to be the United States of America, he'll probably have a job at ACORN by Christmas.

Reid also demanded the government “compensate” him for the “hardship” caused by the restrictions, saying they caused him “stress and emotional turmoil.”

Hey, why not? This administration has yet to meet a taxpayer-funded bailout plan they didn't like.

Do you take cash?
