    Witness the "riot" police who rampaged through the RNC in the twin cities less than a month ago, knocking down doors, executing unwarranted searches and seizures, using violence and threats of violence to provoke violent responses.

    I no longer have any illusions.

    My fellow citizens - armed and empowered by uniforms of state - are entirely capable of shooting me if an authority deems that I am suddenly a threat to the peace. Even if I'm acting within my quaint constitutional right to assemble, protest, speak or arm myself.
