A Canada Border Crossing Mini-Drama


This seems to be over a year old, but I don't recall coming across it before. If it is old news, forgive me.

It's an interesting audio clip of what purports to be a Canadian couple curious about why U.S. border officers insist on knowing specific stores in a mall they intend to visit, which of course ends up in arrest of both him and his wife.

As soon as you pulled away from my officers when they went to grab your arm, that's assault!" [see around 8:45]
