Peter Watts in Border Dispute

Science fiction author Peter Watts was stopped by US border guards on his way home to Canada on December 8 and beaten and pepper-sprayed before being arrested. Watts faces a felony rap for assaulting a federal officer, which can carry a two year prison sentence and a lifetime ban from the United States. A legal defense fund has been set up to aid Watts in his defense.

    Why don’t Peter just take it like a man? Both sides of our border, Canada and U.S. just don’t go around beating people. I have crossed a thousand plus times and you just do what they ask and you go on your way. They are trying to keep us all safe from dangerous drugs and dangerous people. For God sakes let them do their job!!!
