I completely agree with everything you said........I think ...Well maybe!! What I didn't get was if the thing he did was not the reason for concern;....was it the other thing that might have been the threat to national secur....or ...no....did they mention the threat to...no, they didn't say that did they?? Oh damn!! Now I'm confused. This police work with kids and cameras and ice cream must be tougher than I thought.I think I"ll take my meds an have a nap, or something!!
I was always told that a personal (pat down) search of your person and clothing, was for the safety of an officer(s) at a legitimate stoppage or arrest. How can the content of a cell phone be a threat to an officers physical well being?? How are ideas like this fabricated and by whom? How are rulings like this justified? It sounds like some of these people should be told to step DOWN from their respective offices and replace them with people with common sense.
The Patriot Act is the KY Lubricant for the insertation of the Presidential Execuitive Orders. The content of these Orders become effective upon a declared state of emergency by.....who else.....The President!! Much of the success of the PA relies now and will continue to rely on....who else....Homeland Security! A peaceful end to the rights and freedoms of Americans is only a goal;not a necessity. Too much unrest, demonstration, protest, civil unrest of any kind and guess what......YOU GOT IT!! A declared state of emergency, which could activate....why of course....The Presidential Execuitive Orders. Say it isn't so FEDS!! Tell us all about the Patriot Act. Why is it such a big secret??
Terrorists are laughing. We are already their victims. Two powerful nation are chasing their own tails because of the word terrorism. The law(s) in the UK and the Patriot Act in the US are in place to control people......not to deter trrrorism. The world banking and finance systems want this control, sooo...having laws rewritten or repealed is out of the question!! Before his election Mr. Obama had indicated he would repeal the Patriot Act!!! Welllll.....DUHHHHHHHH!
We vote for the people who make the laws and not for the laws. Once they are made into law they can be manipulated by the powers that be because we are made to feel inadequate to interpret them. The tail is now wagging the dog. This "ticket" has all the "clout" of a seat belt violation. No death, no personal injury, no property damage,not even a plaintiff. Any of these scam tickets can be beat!! You must be prepared by knowing the law or having a trustworthy attorney, by being willing to spend 1-2 nights in jail, and be willing to appeqal to the next higher court and/or jury trial.
