Title: FBI targets political activists
Post by: Adios on May 26, 2011, 05:13:04 pm
More than a dozen peace activists in the Midwest will face a federal grand jury in Chicago in the next few weeks, in an investigation related to terrorism.

The FBI searched the activists' homes last week, confiscating computers, photographs and other materials that the search warrants suggest could be evidence of "material support" of terrorist organizations. None of those whose homes were searched have been charged but they have been subpoenaed to appear before a federal grand jury in Chicago.

They are using anti terrorist laws along with warrants to search homes and issue grand jury subpoenas. reliable sources are hard to dig up, but this appears to be happening nationwide.

The FBI stopped (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COINTELPRO) targeting political activists?

Excellent point. This may also explain why NPR is on the financial aid hit list.

Honestly, we can not expect honest reporting for any US news source because they would be under the search warrant and grand jury subpoena threat, as well as the FCC. I suspect they could be charged and have their licenses stripped.

I can hardly even comprehend that it's happening! Isn't that, like, undemocratic or something? In my America?

All I'm saying is I wish Americans would show some nards and put some guards' heads on pikes in front of the White House.  It's the only thing monarchs understand.

That would never work. Wed spend all of our time squabbling over whether the Democrats or the Republican heads go on the pikes.

I think we could probably compromise on both.
