If I were Leigh Van Bryan or Emily Bunting, I’d be upset with the US! Not only did they get shipped back to the UK after a run-in with authorities at LAX, but as a result, a lot of information about Leigh is open to the world!
Unless the post and photo are removed, you can see what I mean for yourself: link
So here’s what we know about his case—and all without due process or recourse:
Subject ID: 342003068
Event No: LAX1201000189
File No: A200 247 649
Date of Birth: 12/31/1985
Foreign Address: 43 Upper Eastern Green Lane, Conventry, United Kingdom CVS 7DA
US Address: 1615 N. Western Ave, Hollywood City Inn, Los Angeles, California
And we know that CBPO Edward Wahmann has a TERRIBLE signature! And I thought my signature was bad!!!
But more importantly, aside from me perpetuating the offense, why is it OK for the government to release this information to the media and then for them to post it online? OK, maybe the kid gave it to the media! Still…
And more important still, what could I possibly say to get a one-way ticket to England?
Sadly, any anti-____ (you fill in the blank) sentiment I express will just get me negative attention, an investigation, maybe some jail time, and a lot of grief! And this guy simply tweeted something that got misinterpreted!
Really! Did they really think he was going to dig up Marilyn Monroe? There are a lot crazier people already here!
For that matter, there are millions of illegal aliens here! They don’t tweet their intentions—they simply come in quietly, get false documents, get jobs, get benefits, and suck the financial life out of the country. Should we go after them and deport them? No! The Feds are too busy going after two British tourists over a stupid tweet!
Washington and specifically Homeland Security have their priorities wrong! Give me a job in DC and I’ll fix things! First priority will be to instill a sense of Common Sense! Second will be to enforce the laws that are already on the books. And third will be to get Homeland focused on the tweets from the guys who seriously want to “destroy America”—not the two Brits who misused the phrase and got caught!
