Notice how nobody says, “It’s a free country!” any more?

That’s because it isn’t. Earlier today 1389 Blog posted this notice at the top of our page: Worldwide burning of 2,998 Qur’ans on September 11, 2013 at 5pm EDT (Livestream Link).

Such was not to be. We have so many laws in the US and in all of its States, counties, and localities that, if any governmental body or official wants to get you, for any reason or for no reason, they can and they most certainly will. It is both physically and logically impossible for any American to be in compliance with all of the applicable laws and regulations all of the time, or even most of the time. Unless, of course, one is part of the power elite or a member of one of its protected classes (such as Muslims) who are being used as clubs to beat the rest of us over the head with.

Orlando Sentinel has the story:

The controversial Gainesville Pastor Terry Jones, known for his plans to publicly burn copies of the Muslim holy book, the Quran, was arrested Wednesday in Polk County, deputies have confirmed.

Jones, 61, was arrested on felony charges after a traffic stop near a pharmacy in Mulberry, a small town in Polk County, just before 5 p.m. He faces charges of unlawfully transporting fuel and openly carrying a firearm.

Deputies say Jones was riding in a pickup truck that was towing a smoker and trailer filled with kerosene-soaked Qurans. He also had extra bottles of kerosene inside the truck bed.

According to Jones’ website, he had plans to burn 2,998 Qurans in the Tampa Bay area on Wednesday at 5 p.m. He was arrested along with Associate Pastor Marvin Sapp minutes before the scheduled burning.

Sapp’s pickup truck was seized. He was also charged with unlawfully transporting fuel and received several citations related to improper lighting on the trailer.

“My detectives had many conversations with Terry Jones prior to today,” Sheriff’s Grady Judd said Wednesday. “He was told he was welcome to come to Polk County and express his first amendment rights. However, if he violated the law, he would absolutely be arrested and placed in the county jail.

“On Sept.11 he arrived in Polk County, violated the law and our detectives arrested him and booked him into the county jail just as he was informed.”

As pastor of Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Jones’ controversial stances have drawn widespread scrutiny.

Most notably, Jones announced plans to burn copies of the Muslim holy book, the Quran, in 2010 at his church, prompting protests and condemnation from international leaders.

Last April, he organized a Sanford event in support of George Zimmerman, the man acquitted in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

The police state government stikes again “what else is new”. It is sickening that politicians and police live in fear of Muslims rioting. I hope Pastor Jones re-schedules his burning of the Quarans. I wish Americans, Canadians, and Europeans would stop tolerting Muslims, and the corrupt politicians who are pandering to their every desire.

More “Pre-Crime,” pre-emptive and “preventative” arrests – ALL liberal “laws” are really crimes in themselves!
