    Finally someone is challenging the ACLU in New York over subway searches.



    http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=45611

    Calling it a "fund-raising stunt," Swarthout asserted the American Civil Liberties Union's action may also be dangerous to the citizens of New York City.

    "These searches are part of a well-thought-out security plan and may stop a terrorist from walking onto the subway trains and blowing up innocent Americans," he said.

    The ACLU's suit, to be filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, will claim the city's new policy violates constitutional guarantees of equal protection and prohibitions against unlawful searches and seizures, according to New York Newsday.

    At the same time, the lawsuit argues, the policy does almost nothing to protect the city from terrorism.

    The ACLU also contends the measure allows the possibility of racial profiling, despite the requirement that officers must randomly screen passengers.

    "While concerns about terrorism of course justify – indeed, require – aggressive police tactics, those concerns cannot justify the Police Department's unprecedented policy of subjecting millions of innocent people to suspicionless searches," the suit states, according to Newsday.

    Swarthout points out the ACLU also has called metal detectors in airports an invasion of privacy.

    "There is no pleasing the ACLU, because improving society or protecting the rights of American citizens is no longer its goal," he charged. :thup:

    Hopefully they will charge the ACLU with treason.

    A related article:
    IS THERE REASON TO PROSECUTE THE ACLU FOR TREASON?

    It has been said that the pen is mightier than the sword. And the ACLU's litigation tactics may give much more aid and comfort to the enemy than the ACLU lawyers could provide if they gave up the practice of law and reported for training from Al Qaeda and took on the men and women of the United States military instead of federal, state and/or local government lawyers.

    My hope is that people will finally start opening their eyes to what the ACLU actually stands for, and quit knuckling under to their strong arm tactics.

    I can't understand the governments reluctance to stand up to them--it's like the illegal immigration issue, I guess. There's something in for them to just keep thier mouths shut.

    That will help us fight the profiling claims, but will not affect the Anti-Christian Leftist Union from charging unconstitutional search and seizure violations under the 4th Amendment.

    We all knew this dreck was coming. This is why we need lawyers from law schools like the new one at Liberty University.
