Is posting satire acceptable? Not in New York city!!!

Essam Attia a 29 year old man posted some posters around New York depicting Drones dropping bombs on people, in at attempt to further the discussion on the use of military drones in U.S. airspace.  The NYPD however did not find this amusing and tracked him down.  They charged him with numerous felony counts but was released on bond.  His arrest actually proves his point.  If you become an enemy of the state, even if the state is the real enemy, they will find you. 

"I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than those attending too small a degree of it."

-Thomas Jefferson.  (Also stenciled by Essam Attia)
