This is starting to feel perilously close to a police state to me.

December 3rd, 2007

As most blog readers in Wisconsin already know, buy viagra click a local teacher was arrested for posing as a conservative on a Wisconsin blog and writing vaguely threatening comments:

As readers of a conservative blog debated the subject of teacher salaries, viagra a writer using the pseudonym “Observer” weighed in. The West Bend teachers’ salaries made him sick, the person wrote, adding that the 1999 Columbine High School killers had the right idea.

“They knew how to deal with the overpaid teacher union thugs. One shot at a time! Too bad the liberls (sic) rip them; they were heros (sic) and should be remembered that way,” the writer said.

But police say the writer was a teacher himself – and the past president of a teachers union – apparently posing as a teacher-hater.

James Buss was arrested Thursday by West Bend police, and the 46-year-old Cudahy man could face criminal charges. He has been suspended from his job as a teacher at Oak Creek High School.

I think what the teacher did was stupid, but I think what the cops did was truly frightening.

The fact that the police can come to your home and take you away for something you wrote is much more threatening than anything Buss could have written.
