This scares me!

This has a very distinct resemblance to the german secret police of WWII. Law enforcement will never admit that the " WAR on TERROR " will ever be over so they will never have to discontinue their tactics of violating the Constitution of The United States. In their opinion Law Enforcement at all levels are above the law and only in a very few cases when Law Enforcement violates laws, that have nothing to do with civil liberties, is there ever anyone prosicuted.

I listen to people talk and they don't think this is right because Law Enforcement hasn't ever done anything to them. So it must not be happening. Well that is just not true. They have just been living their life below the Law Enforcement radar. If you ever get into that radar, whether it be from a disgruntaled neighbor, a new police officer in town, someone who feels you aren't living your life the way they want you to, or just bad luck you may find out you are living in a police state and the only rights you have are the ones they want to let you have. And if youre poor and get in the radar you'd better go ahead and move out of state and live a very quiet and private life for the next five years until you can once again live under the radar. While the fereral government law enforcement is a threat to your Constitutional Rights, your local city police, county sheriff's office, and various state law enforcement are much more of a threat to your personal life. Just scares me to death.
