This is another sad, but maddening example of what America has come to. Most people are oblivious, and, as long as this kind of thing happens to other people and not us, we are inclined to think things are not so bad, or just fine. The norm now is to look the other way, or, if confronted with stories like this, to make some excuse for such abuses of power. We don't want to be bothered with the question, "What can I/we do to change or stop this?"

I periodically provide mind-blowing examples of individuals who have their lives turned upside down by evil bureaucrats.

You may think “evil” is too strong a word, but it sticks in my mind after perusing these examples of abusive actions by the federal government.
