Shaken, not stirred.

Tim Butz, director of the Nebraska state chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, said that two state troopers tried to intimidate him after he screened Unconstitutional: The War on Our Civil Liberties, a documentary that criticizes the USA Patriot Act, reports AP. Butz alleges that the two troopers approached him after the screening. One trooper identified himself as an FBI agent. The other accused him of lying and, according to Butz, said "that I 'shouldn't come out to these small towns and scare people and stir things up.'"
