Microwaving People

from the forget-the-mail... dept

Not quite sure what to make of this one. We were just talking about microwaving the mail to get rid of anthrax, and now suddenly we’ve moved up to microwaving people to get crowds to disperse. Something about this sounds very dangerous. Forget tear gas and police with batons. Let’s just fry the crowds. We already killed the fourth amendment today, we’re a bit questionable on the “freedom of speech” part in the first amendment, so why not kill the “right to assembly” part as well?

chill out

Hey man,

You seriously need to chill. Our rights are still intact. I think that what they passed was just fine, and in fact, could have gone further. These guys are after people who have come here on visas and overstayed their welcome, not citizens who abide by the law. And besides, the House required the Sunset provision so that all of these powers expire in four year’s time. I’m sure that, depending on the situation, the FBI will probably want to renew these new powers after that time, but honestly, I don’t think it is going to infringe upon Citizen’s liberties.

Just my $0.02 on the whole thing….
