Man arrested, cuffed after using $2 bills

Sam Francis' anarcho-tyranny in action:

A man trying to pay a fee using $2 bills was arrested, handcuffed and taken to jail after clerks at a Best Buy store questioned the currency's legitimacy and called police.

According to an account in the Baltimore Sun, 57-year-old Mike Bolesta was shocked to find himself taken to the Baltimore County lockup in Cockeysville, Md., where he was handcuffed to a pole for three hours while the U.S. Secret Service was called to weigh in on the case.

I'm so comforted that the sharp little tools at Best Buy are part of the Wall O' Protection serving this great nation since 9/11.

Wonder what they would've done had the gentleman tried to pay with some Confederate money?

And just how long ARE we going to have to wait to see MLK's face on a piece of U.S. currency?

Something tells me that this is a "diversity" related incident!
