Making the World Safe for Honeybaked Ham

Osama bin Laden may still be on the loose, but the DeKalb County, Georgia Honeybaked Ham store is safe from attack -- all thanks to your tax dollars.

The picture at the left is an actual government photo of a vegan protesting the eating of meat. A controversial idea, perhaps, but certainly not pro-terrorist.

The FBI and county Homeland Security agents apparently considered the vegan rally a threat to national security. They spied on the rally. From WXIA, Atlanta:

"For example, more than two dozen government surveillance photographs show 22-year-old Caitlin Childs of Atlanta, a strict vegetarian, and other vegans picketing against meat eating, in December 2003. They staged their protest outside a HoneyBaked Ham store on Buford Highway in DeKalb County."

Ms Childs was arrested at the rally. For writing down the license number of a suspicious car.

The car turned out to be that of the detective taking pictures of the event. She'd become suspicious when the stranger was taking all those pictures. (WXIA/The Raw Story)

Hey the government has to have something to do. Just think of all the unemployable people who got to work that day taking pictures.If all the agents were undercover how did they know to arrest her?
