Yeah, I have mixed feelings about this, too. My misgivings are twofold -- (1)The questionable taste of sendings flowers to an accused mass murderer; and (2) The FBI's invasion of this man's privacy on grounds no stronger than that his taste is in question.
Where is the breech of national security here? Surely a local born-again Christian type character isn't suspected of being in league with terrorists? If he is, the FBI is making a laughing-stock of itself. That's a parody of dumbness.
