Reading in a Coffeehouse…

…is now apparently suspicious behavior. Check out this article in Atlanta’s alternative newspaper, Creative Loafing about a local retail employee, Marc Schultz, who was questioned by the FBI after a Caribou Coffee employee reported him for reading a left-wing editorial in public. After being asked if he had carried anything into a Caribou one Saturday, Schultz is unable to recall.

Then [Agent] Trippi decides to level with me: “I’ll tell you what, Marc. Someone in the shop that day saw you reading something, and thought it looked suspicious enough to call us about. So that’s why we’re here, just checking it out. Like I said, there’s no problem. We’d just like to get to the bottom of this. Now if we can’t, then you may have a problem. And you don’t want that.”

No, we wouldn’t want that, would we? Here’s the “controversial” article Schultz was reading.
