When I saw a priest crossing the border with a computer check, and subsequently getting arrested for having underage pron on his computer, I kinda
thought to myself... Good job on that! But in the back of my mind, I thought about the fourth amendment, or section 8 of Canada's constitution-Which
applied to how they got the info.
And that's how it's done. A few cases like putting an evil priest away and everyone says, "We need this to get the bad guys!"
But, as easily as something like this could be done, so too could something be planted on anyone's computer. Or like in the case of Assange, where it
seems as though he may have had undercover agents working in his employ without his knowledge, they could easily download and delete a bunch of stuff
like this, and BAM! Cross a border with one of these "Computer Checks" and it's goodnight London.
Under the guise of "protecting children" the overseers seem to be able to get away with anything. This kind of power is kind of scary. And the fact
that it is such an emotional issue, it makes it a perfect one to launch false accusations against people. Hell, who wants to defend someone suspected
of such a heinous act?? Who wants to talk about being the neutral voice on an issue that cuts deep with the majority of the population...
I've said it before and I'd say again. I'm no revolutionary, when it comes close to home, I'm going to cut and run. I like these topics quite a
bit, but if my interest put a target on my back I'd simply give it up and spend more time golfing.
Looking back at history:
In the 60s, the feds wanted to hit the hippie crowd. They did so with massive entrapment schemes using *that which we don't mention here* and they
literally herded people into jail simply to give them records and track them. And some ended up doing pretty long stints too.
Officers of that era (undercover) have come forward about how they used to pester people daily, asking them, "Hey man can you hook me up with _____"
and after repeated and forceful persuasion, people with absolutely no affiliation might help them out thinking they are doing the right thing, only to
be arrested in a sting shortly after.
The former agents admitted they ruined many lives and they felt guilty about it.
I hope the climate doesn't shift in that direction. But perhaps it needs to get completely ridiculous for the common people to look and say, "We
have a problem here." If it does, looks like I'll be force-feeding myself some koolaid for a good while.
Ya sir, yes sir, mista massa sah. What it is you is a wan-ned sah? I is here ta help any ways I can.
Nice thread Jude, thanks for bringing it to the forum.
