"These raids suggest an ongoing trend of intrusive government surveillance of progressive activists in the United States," they wrote in a joint
letter to President Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, the leaders of Congress and FBI director Robert Mueller. "Prosecutions for protected
political activity have a chilling effect, not just in the communities in which they occur, but also on the First Amendment rights of all
Americans."Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
Of course the FBI should be investigated and not necessarily the agents who were just doing their job, but rather the premise that allowed such a
thing. In a free society, you can not have the authorities intimidating or squelching the peoples' right to exert their view, so long as these
activists groups are within the confines of the Constitution.
Look what this country is turning into. We have the FBI raiding and infiltrating activists group. We have forced molestings or dangerous and unhealthy
strip searches. We have millions of people being held against their will for what amounts to political crimes and now you are considered a terrorist
for questioning your government, a process which is just as American as apple pie.
When the American people can no longer question their government or hold them accountable, then freedom becomes astranged and in its place comes a
breeding ground of tyranny. When the government makes descisions for or in spite of the people, instead of by or of the people, then again freedom
becomes only a buzzword used to subdue.
We can not allow this to happen and expect freedom to prevail.
