Cynical sends this, a link to a series of photos taken by a former janitor, Arizona-based photographer Thomas Kiefer, who chronicles the items thrown out by U.S. Customs and Border Control.
I don’t understand. Why were these things thrown out?
From the link: Personal items deemed “non-essential” are seized and tossed during processing. I bet there are people who would argue that their crucifixes are essential.
That’s for sure. I don’the understand even throwing out any personal belongings, non-essential or not.
Nor I. I mean, they’re only toting what they can carry. How can it be an issue to let them keep what they can carry?
Answer; Because we live in a police state and don’t you forget it. Didn’t you know that already? Even though I am in favor of robust border policing, I do believe in showing compassion.
“Because we live in a police state…”
You kid. But there’s more truth to that than you might think.
And none of those reasons mention the extrajudicial executions by our law enforcement that has spawned a new social justice movement.
