What have we become?

From LA Observed: Another journo nabbed at LAX.

Elena Lappin, a Brit -- you know, the allies -- got off her plane from London and made the mistake of telling U.S. officials she would be mixing a little freelance journalism with her sight-seeing. Her story, told on the L.A. Times op-ed page today, includes being cuffed, searched, perp-walked, held overnight in a downtown cell and ignored when she complained about feeling sick.

Where are we? Who are we?
