Pas på, når du rejser til USA: Tæsk forude

Beatings ahead

Da den canadiske science fiction-forfatter Peter Watts’ bil blev gennemrodet ved den amerikansk-canadiske grænse, begik han den fejl at spørge hvorfor. Big mistake.

Så nogen lavede et skilt, som de kan sætte op ved de amerikanske grænseovergange for at advare besøgende om, hvad de kan forvente.

Cory Doctorow har historien på Boing Boing:

Kai was outraged by the conviction of Dr Peter Watts, the Canadian science fiction writer who got out of his vehicle while crossing back into Canada to ask a US border guard why his car was being searched, and was clubbed, gassed, charged with a felony, and left in wet clothes in an unheated cell overnight during a snow-storm. So Kai made this sign warning unwary travellers of what they might expect the next time they cross into Canada at Port Huron. I’ve checked with Peter (who is awaiting sentencing) and he’s OK with this being posted.

Jeg skimter en turistkampagne i horisonten: Kom til Sunny Florida og få tæsk af politiet. Eller ikke. Der er mere om historien her, Cory har også en del links efter opslaget på Boing Boing.
