A 55-year-old disabled veteran was labeled a “terrorist” by three county commissioners after he photographed security cameras at the Elbert County administration building in Colorado as part of an investigation, a designation the main claimed was retribution for him filing multiple open-records requests.
Elbert County resident Don Pippin took pictures of the security cameras back in April as part of an open-records request that sought to discover the cost of the surveillance system. An employee immediately reported Pippin to the commissioners for engaging in suspicious activity.
“After the commissioners met on the issue, “(Commissioner Kurt) Schlegel asked for and received a temporary court order barring Pippin from the building, saying the back of his hair stood up when he saw what he says was footage of Pippin “casing” the building for a possible attack,” reports the Denver Post.
Schlegel called Pippin a “terrorist” and attempted to secure a permanent protection order against him, but a judge threw the request out, noting that Pippin posed no threat to anybody.

Dangerous crowd, those commissioners. Someone should take them for a field trip and show them what a real threat is. The bullying in this country has to stop.

Diane - The last time I remember hearing about county commissioners was when a whole bunch of them got busted in Oklahoma for taking bribes.
Yeah, I agree with you, as usual.

What a sad, sad country we have become. It just irritates me that some of these politicians who have not sacrificed anything in their life come down on people who have.
