Don’t the friggin cops have anything better to do than spy on peace and anti-death penalty groups?

Jesus Christ on a cracker..this is such a waste of taxpayer money, and law enforcements precious time..I can’t even begin to tell you how friggin pissed off it makes me. From the ACLU website:

BALTIMORE – The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland today made public what it called “shocking” documents obtained through a Maryland Public Information Act (MPIA) lawsuit, revealing that the Maryland State Police (MSP) engaged in covert surveillance of local peace and anti-death penalty groups for over a year from 2005-2006. The organization expressed alarm at the incomprehensible spying revealed in 43 pages of summaries and computer logs, none of which refer to criminal or even potentially criminal acts, other than a few isolated references to plans for completely nonviolent civil disobedience.

Bullshit on a stick people!!! As The Progressive notes:

Max Obuszewski is a seasoned, nonviolent peace activist in Maryland. But to the Maryland State Police, he is suspected of committing the “primary crime” of “terrorism-anti-war protestors” and the “secondary crime” of “terrorism-anti-govern.”

That is how the Maryland State Police designated him in internal documents that the ACLU of Maryland obtained through a lawsuit and released on July 17. The documents also show that the Maryland State Police entered his name into a database dealing with “high intensity drug activity.” These documents reveal an elaborate undercover operation against peace groups and anti-capital-punishment groups.

This is how it starts you know…anyone that thinks for themselves and refuses to be part of the herd is labeled and then dealt with. Nationalism is one of the 14 points of Facism. So is identifying enemies/scapegoats as a unifying cause.
