FBI Watching Anti-War Groups

F.B.I. Scrutinizes Antiwar Rallies

So just a couple of days ago, the government panel charged with looking into the PATRIOT Act decided that the ACLU was panicking people unnecessarily. Here's your answer: they're not. The FBI is now monitoring protest groups because they're prone to violence.

A lot of '60s and '70s protestors liken it back to earlier attempts at the FBI to "get the goods" on protest groups... personally, I'm not sure I care if it's the same. It's still screwy, unless they've actually done something.

BTW, in case they're watching: Hi, Mr. or Ms. FBI Person. I hope you enjoy my site. I suggest that you note that I'm non-violent, and don't side with groups that are violent. On the other hand, I certianly don't approve of governments who watch their people and analyze what they do and say for "suspicious signs". Thanks for playing.

And now congress has passed a bill to let them do even more "spying". They can no access information on you, and automaticlly issue a gag order. So if ask the library if the feds are looking at what you reading, they can't even tell you.
