I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
TrapWire: The Less-Than-Advertised System To Spy On Americans - The Daily BeastWhat is TrapWire?
While it’s been widely described as a Minority Report-like, global facial-recognition surveillance system to predict your every move, it’s actually much less exciting than that. TrapWire is kind of predictive, but it doesn’t apparently rely on facial recognition—probably because the company isn’t very good at that particular technology yet. It’s not necessarily worldwide, though its list of reported users is pretty extensive: Las Vegas casinos, #10 Downing Street, the New York City subway system (though the Department has flatly denied using the system), the LAPD, Washington, D.C., and all of Texas. Basically, TrapWire uses whatever closed-circuit cameras the user can access (like those domed security cameras on the ceilings of grocery stores, in the subway, and, well, everywhere else) to monitor activity. Nothing new so far; security cameras tend to do that kind of thing. But here’s where it gets interesting: “suspicious activities” – taking pictures, making measurements, and other things that could point to a nefarious terrorist plot – can be flagged. These are combined with civilian reports aggregated by the software (think “If you see something, say something”), and assessed by TrapWire analysts. The resulting “suspicious activity reports” are sent to the user and any relevant law enforcement, including the Department of Homeland Security.
That retard sounds like a run of the mill Ron Paul supporter.

I think anarchy is fun. Assassinations are like Call of Duty. I hate the cops. There is a bomb in my pants. This subway is a great target for my penis bomb. Come at me CIA.
In all seriousnes, I would be fairly certain that the CIA had reason to order his arrest. Any number of unarrested people have said raucus things so I'm gonna throw out there that he probably was doing whatever they said. Mistakes would be devastating to the CIA's integritiy so I highly doubt that they would risk a slip up.
Note: I used the CIA because I don't know what agency this involves but I'd assume FBI/CIA

Stolen fair and square from the Capt. Courtesey himself.I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.
His FB post sounds almost inspiring, if it wasn't a stereotypical right wing libertarian rant.
I check his FB page. I don't see the long rant anywhere, nor do I see any threatening posts. Were they removed perhaps?
Also he made a post 13 hours ago where he thanks the support of his friends and family. Either he's been released from government detention, or someone is posting on his behalf while he remains incarcerated.
So before you preach about human rights, freedom and democracy to the rest of the world put your own house in order first.
Interesting, they want to change the US to be more like these other countries, which they apparently think is the better way to do business but don't want to go there because they think the US is better and never stop to realize that maybe the reason the US is better is because we do not do business the same way as those other countries who's ways they want to adopt.
