My view from the bus on my way home from the international men's issues conference 2014

I totally forgot I had this until I was going through my phone pics today. It's not a men's rights issue so much as an interesting thing. The southbound Greyhound bus I was on was stopped just south of Toledo, Ohio, by the United States border patrol, complete with drug sniffing dog. I took a cell phone pic out the window.

Thought I'd share.

The dog, apparently not trained to sniff out ibuprofen and fruit flavored gummy vitamins,
showed little interest in the baggage compartment of the bus.
No aliens were found, either, but you know,
Greyhound did transport a wild honey badger to Detroit and back.

Fortunately, that's not Border Patrol's area of interest,
and they did not return me to the sammich mines.

§ 287 (a) (3) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 66 Stat. 233, 8 U.S.C. § 1357(a)(3), which provides for warrantless searches of automobiles and other conveyances "within a reasonable distance from any external boundary of the United States," as authorized by regulations to be promulgated by the Attorney General. The Attorney General's regulation, 8 CFR § 287.1, defines "reasonable distance" as "within 100 air miles from any external boundary of the United States."

Border patrol's buffer zone, called a "constitution-free zone" by the ACLU, extends as far south as Columbus.
