environmentalist fired for violating nonexistent homeland security law

From BoingBoing:

Well-known environmentalist Willie Fontenot was giving some college students a tour of an oil refinery recently. They were standing on a public sidewalk, taking photographs of the refinery, when sheriff’s deputies and refinery security guards came over and asked Fontenot to confiscate the students’ drivers licenses and hand them over. Fontenot refused, and as a result, he lost his job as community liaison officer for the Louisiana Attorney General’s office.
