this is so scary

AND more importantly SO UNAMERICAN. we have rules and laws here. we cannot throw them aside just because one belongs to greenpeace or as differing views. it's ok to suspect. it's ok to search.  YOU JUST NEED CAUSE AND A WARRANT.  if president obama isn't aware of what's going on, someone MUST educate him. if he IS aware and accepts this, really, i shall never ever vote for him again

FBI to Expand Domestic Surveillance Powers As Details Emerge of Its Spy Campaign Targeting Activists

AMY GOODMAN: Civil liberties advocates are raising alarm over news that the FBI is giving agents more leeway to conduct domestic surveillance. According to the New York Times, new guidelines will allow FBI agents to investigate people and organizations "proactively" without firm evidence for suspecting criminal activity. The new rules will free up agents to infiltrate organizations, search household trash, use surveillance teams, search databases, conduct lie detector tests, even without suspicion of any wrongdoing.
The revised guidelines come as the FBI’s existing practices have already come under wide scrutiny. Last month, the New York Times revealed a number of new revelations against activists targeted by domestic spying. One of those activists is 44-year-old Scott Crow, an Austin, Texas resident, self-proclaimed anarchist. He has just learned he was targeted by the FBI from 2001 until at least 2008. ..................
