    U.S. May Ease Police Spy Rules

    U.S. May Ease Police Spy Rules

    Taken together, critics in Congress and elsewhere say, the moves are intended to lock in policies for Bush's successor and to enshrine controversial post-Sept. 11 approaches that some say have fed the greatest expansion of executive authority since the Watergate era.
    Article here........

    Most people think of a person like Hitler, Stalin, Saddam when thinking of dictators. How about an entire system, ever give that thought? This is another example of "Scientific Dictatorship". This time thy admit it. This is why the dems did not rock the boat when it came to the theft of your civil liberties, they want the same power. Hell they need it to keep control of you.

    Excellent idea stratifying intelligence gathering and bringing local law enforcement into the anti-terrorism intelligence gathering fold.

    So much for the fourth, it is never good when you give up the basic principles of this country. This is to give more powers and cement the spy powers in place, trouble is they have netted zero terrorist with this power. It is for you, not some make believe terrorist Bourne.

    Freedom isn't free. It comes with a price tag. In this case there is no indication that local law enforcement would misuse that intelligence gathering authority but there is every reason to believe that such authority serves as another layer of protection against terrorism.

    How is granting local law enforcement the authority to gather intelligence relevant to suspected terrorist activity in any way infringing on your liberties?

    Because there are no rules defining what constitutes a "suspected terrorist". Is a suspected terrorist anything like an "Enemy Combatant"? We'll have neighbors snitching to the "gestapo" with trumped up charges because they don't like them. This whole war on terror is a power grab and a crock of shit. Sorry but they are trying to throw the fourth amendment out the window for a false sense of security. Wake up folks...the boogeyman ain't coming to get us. But the fear sells newspapers and secures votes.

    This post IMO deserves the most honest post of the day award in my books. I am glad we can see eye to eye at times mjollnir.
