Wouldn't This Guy Be Dead if Black or Arab?

If an arab drove a truck into the National Mall, announcing he had explosives, do you think the police would let him stay there for three days? Or if he was black?

It will be interesting to see if the government brings the full weight of the Patriot Act down on this guy-- by it's definition of terrorism as threat of violence to influence US government policy, this white tobacco farmer is the clearest example, far more than any other US residents currently jailed under the Act.
