Welcome to Illinois... Leave Your Bill of Rights At The Door

Illinois politicians like using the police to silence detractors.  State Sen. Dan Kotowski sent the ISP to threaten a man who was criticizing him.  Now the Mayor of Peoria, IL has used the local PD to perform an armed raid against a guy who set up a fake twitter account satirizing the mayor, a misdemeanor
He was the only one arrested when seven police officers wearing bulletproof vests with guns strapped to their chests served a search warrant at his home Tuesday as part of an effort to unmask the author of a fake Twitter account that parodied Mayor Jim Ardis.
This is something that a cease-and-desist letter is for or a phone call from a lawyer.  But instead let's use our local SWAT team to ransack the place and disrupt his life including possibly losing his job.  

Is it any wonder people are less trusting of the gov't/authority nowadays?  Why should we believe them anymore?

What would happen if a bunch of out-of-state folks set up satirical (dare I say, mocking) Twitter accounts and let the Good Mayor have it, in 140 characters or less?

What would he do? What could he do?
