...But not for long.

lyrics

Your affiant is an interim squad leader for the 101st Federal Defense Team.
My duties include containing dissidence to maintain government continuity.

We received an alert from our online watch unit.
Soft threat words were observed on a college message board.
A student was boasting of "a plan to dismantle
The power structure and make the plutocrats cower."

We converged on her dorm and performed a flashbang sweep
And standard preemptive canine neutralization.
Our target was not home but a search was carried out.
We retrieved a printout of The Anarchist Cookbook.

Overnight surveillance revealed no activity
But we picked up a call from St. Julia's Hospital.
The target was IDed in an effort to abscond
With a man wearing scrubs and a poor counterfeit badge.

We arrived on the scene and took possession of both.
They were tagged, transported, and secured in separate cells.
Each confessed to a plot to stage disruptive sit-ins
On crucial trading floors and in high-traffic corporate suites.

Your affiant finds no violent intentions, but indefinite detention remains prescribed
To put us back on track to meet this year's plan for revenue from prisoner storage fees.
