    And worse still, this is technically legal under the Patriot Act's "Lone Wolf" provision.

    This is not the America I was born in...

    Thanks for the post eagle, although that is very disturbing.

    This is really bad. Really really really bad. I work for a firm that litigates police brutality cases against city governments.

    While there are legitimate grounds for warrantless searches (several of them) this doesn't sound right at all. You still need probably cause or an exception like "plain view" or "exigent circumstances".

    Pyles is lawyering up, so he may still receive compensation.

    Problem is, the Oregon Police are hiding behind the Patriot Act...

    Well I dont think you can go that far.

    The UN Resolution that came out after the first gulf war (1331 or 1441, I've forgotten) set in stone that there WERE WMDs. And that they needed to be eliminated. That's the world community agreeing that they DID exist. Without proof that they were eliminated, what else were we to do?

    But that's getting this thread off topic. :p


    Every congressman who voted for the Patriot Act needs to be ashamed.

    Under the color of law anything can be abuse when you have a police state that fully distrust its citizens and gives credibility to the real crooks. "There ought to be a law!"

    Damned if you do....damned if you don't

    If they had the opportunity and did nothing and the guy went postal, all the threads would be...."Why didn't they act sooner given the evidence?

    Case in point Maj Hassan in Ft Hood

    I don't think these two situations are simular enough to compare them.

    I would be interested in your opinion how they are.

    Did you support the patriot act when bush et al pushed it through, or just since 'o' renewed it?
