What happens when a nobody with a bad case of acne saves a classmate from a homicidal maniac? He becomes a hero, of course.  He is even given a car -- or at least a discount on one.  And the car comes complete with Support the Troops ribbons.  When Kevin tosses the ribbons because he thinks they are empty symbols, he doesn't know he is being photographed.  And now the hero has become the villain who doesn't support our troops.  What happened to free speech?
