Cotton Hill and "Homeland Security's" rent-a-cops

Bethesda, MD librarian kicks the ass of two "Homeland Security" officers trying to police patrons' WWW usage. I love the following passage "A librarian intervened, and the two men went into the library's work area to discuss the matter. A police officer arrived. In the end, no one had to step outside except the uniformed men."
Reminds me of the "King of the Hill" episode in which, having been appointed to the Neighborhood Watch, Hank's daddy decides he's empowered to arrest and chastise at will.

Moral of the story: if all you've got is an ill-fitting hat and a tin badge that says "Homeland Security," don't fuck with a librarian who believes in the Constitution.
