Overkill

As unsavory as I find your typical tea-baggers' disruptive tactics at town hall meetings, the deployment of sonic canons strikes me as way over the edge (which is how I would describe using authoritarian tactics on an authoritarian movement). The use of military weaponry against civilians is something I simply cannot countenance under any circumstance. Shame on the San Diego Sheriff Department for doing so, and shame on any other police or sheriff's office who would be tempted to do likewise. In the meantime, keep in mind that in the so-called "land of the free" your freedom is reducible to doing what you are told when you are told.
