    Muslim: Quip led to terror probe
    Of course, once your name gets on "a list," you're screwed. But meh, as I always say, Neimoller Schmiemoller.

    This is sick, really sick! Of course, the morons who arrested him have no business acumen, and do not understand that this can be a common term when it comes to business competition, and should be take "figuratively" not "literally", but they would have no clue as to those words! Gosh, where do they hire these folks from?!!

    Lost in terror translation?
    in Quebec.
    These are (French) Canadian police, not just the rejects that were looking for spades and shovels in the bags of the pair looking forward to "destroying" LA. "Blow away the competition" is such a common US expression the morons responsible must have very limited English skills themselves.
    Even if something else was said, there is no excuse for what this hapless individual, his child, his wife, and his co-workers went through.

    The wheels really are flying off. Hopefully this case becomes helpful evidence to stop the insanity.

    I don't believe anything was lost in translation. The Quebecois also speak English. Quebec is a dual-language province. This was a way to harass this man. Just like U.S. officials harassed that British couple the other week. Handcuffing, arrest, detention, interrogation, deportation. All because they joked on Twitter. It's the same reason Shoshana Hebshi was abused and strip-searched. It's "security" idiocy run amok, and this is only the beginning.
