Local SF author Peter Watts beaten by border cops

A friend of mine, Toronto SF author Peter Watts, was beaten up and arrested by US border guards Tuesday when trying to cross back into Canada. He's back in Canada now, but is being charged with "assaulting a federal officer". Boing Boing has full info. This is total crap.

Wow! I expect this from Detroit border officers, but Port Huron?

We're crossing in Buffalo in two weeks. In my experience, the Buffalo customs guys are laid back. Mighty Taco here we come!
