    B.C. man pepper sprayed when he asked border guard to say 'please'
    I'm just asking for a please, and I get pepper spray in the face, and of course their argument is you must comply with anything an officer says.

    IMHO, both idividuls were way out of line, Mr Fortunato should know better than to challenge the authorities like he did, which is why he should have buried his cynicism right then and there and simply complied whith the officer's legal request, specialy in this post 9/11 nation. Now then, any law enforcement officer who uses force against anyone who is not posing a direct threat or showing hostile intent is being nothing but a "Jack Booted Thug", and needs to be removed from law enforcement period. As for Mr. Fortunato, if he cannot abide by simple request to be allowed to enter this country, then he should not be allowed entry into the US period.

    Re: So sticks and stones will break your bones,


    .... If your words upset me.

    Well I almost agree with everything RC said. However I feel that the "Checker" should show the higher level of professionalism as they are the one working as a professional.

    If I put my self into the situation I for one wouldn't smart off. However If I was the officer I wouldn't use force against a verbal attack/ lame joke/ or even verbal threat. That is where the higher level of professionalism comes into play. It should become part of their training apparently because so many can't handle it. I could see how they might get pulled to the side for a "talking to" if what the say or did is suspicious but a lame joke? Obviously if things deteriorated they do have mace and probably a sidearm and of course the full force of the government backing me (I'd think).

    So sticks and stones will break your bones, if your words upset me.

    I have to travel to the boarder once a year for my wife she is canadian.

    The border officers are major asses. They have an attitude problem just to have it. You speak " hey good mourning how are you?" You get an asshole back.

    I personaly feel they are power obsessed with a God complexe and feel thet their training teaches them to be giant assholes.

    I had one fired for racial slurs. Asking me why I married a "N" women I dont go through detriot anymore due to him.

    It is the worst part of my year!

    At least you recieved a positive outcome with his firing, alot of individuals recieve absolutly no justice when it comes to the bad apples who are in authority.
