Today's City Weekly

February 27, 2008

Today's City Weekly has a lead story about a weird personal feud between our current Attorney General and a rather unusual young lady who is accused of harrassing his assistants by e-mail. The frightening thing about the article is the report that the Attorney General's office has used Homeland Security summonses, which avoid judicial scrutiny and are designed to be used to protect the country from terrorists, to get this young lady's personal information. In order to use these summonses, CW reports that allegations of immigration and customs violations, and child pornography were made. These secret summonses bear the warning that they may not be discussed with others, and that this will be enforced in Federal Court. At this point, I only know what I read. On the surface of it, it appears to be abuse of process and the power of the State of Utah. Read it for yourself, and see what you think.

Don't like what you see? Join me in my efforts to change things and "throw the rascals out." the time is almost here.

    The fact that often goes unmentioned is that the broad investigative powers granted by the so-called USA PATRIOT Act are not restricted to cases involving terrorist plots.

    The FBI and other law enforcement agencies have used their special secret powers in all kinds of investigations, violating the Fourth Amendment rights of US citizens.

    Apparently, the Utah Attorney General sees nothing wrong with using his unconstitutional powers to avoid going before a judge to get warrants to pursue a personal vendetta.

    Most of us just delete unwanted e-mails.
