A Marine Corps reservist in the Tampa area was picking up his dry cleaning when he was accosted by a bearded man who didn't speak English.
So what did he do?
He belabored the bearded man with a tire iron, chased him, then called the cops and claimed that the man was a terrorist and had been speaking Arabic at him.
So now our staunch heroic Marine Corps reservist is in jail - for beating up a Greek Orthodox priest.
In light of the recent tragedy at Fort Hood, it's nice to see people are getting the ground rules set:
Anyone who isn't lily white, wears a beard and doesn't speak English is now fair game, apparently.
We have become the monster, gentle readers.
