Aaron and Bobby McGee
Freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose,
And nothin’ ain’t worth nothin’ but it’s free, — Kris Kristofferson
Down Mississippi way stands a modest, grey home. Salt of the earth kind of setup. It about as apple pie as it gets — Mom, Dad and 18 year old Son. The boy is a geek and an active one at that.
Early one morning the Feds arrived and trashed the home. You can read the whole story here.
Here is just one shot of their home after the raid:
You can see more pictures of their trashed home if you go to the URL for the defense fund of this young man. He was probably providing links to downloads but it isn’t really clear. His lawyer says he is innocent. I find it hard to believe the assault on their modest home was commensurate with the actions need to find out was going on in that home.
If you a few unpledged bucks, I can’t think of a better donation this day. This isn’t my America and I doubt you think it yours. I sent a sawbuck their way and feel better for the act. I hope you do too.
