Actively Stupid Government... Nice people and some law-and-order types occasionally wonder why the public doesn't automatically greet every law enforcement pronouncement with a carpet of pixie-tossed garlands. So let's review.

Invading a bar to roust peaceably assembled citizens is one reason.

Exploiting a sniper hunt to harass lawful gun owners is another reason.

Conducting extra-constitutional prosecutions 75% of the time is another reason.

Seizing a U.S. citizen on secret evidence he cannot rebut is another reason.

Oh, but I could go on.

I'll tell you one thing. Thank God, and the Founding Fathers, for the First Amendment. It's remarkable.
