Something to Pay Attention To…

Posted by Gerald on October 9, 2007

Over at My Beautiful Wickedness Bridgett is exasperated about how peace activists are being harrassed via a misuse of the criminal databases.

I think this is a really important issue because it can so easily slide “under the radar” and it seems to be doing just that.  I’m sometimes more concerned about how the administration uses this kind of petty tactic than I am some of their more gross violations.  The big things are noticable and are likely to be cleaned up if the Dems manage not to blow the next election.  This kind of small change in regular procedures is the sort of thing that can escape notice and create a chilling effect for a long time.
