GUEST,Dreaded Guest BS: Govt Mass Kidnappings (58* d) RE: BS: Govt Mass Kidnappings 26 Mar 03

We posted at the same time. Oregon's not my home state either. I just looked up Senate Bill 782 on google and got a bunch of articles...outrage from the ACLU, etc. It most certainly IS saying what I think it's saying.

Loose wording in laws is designed to create loopholes. This law has too many. 50,000 go to protest, one breaks the law (even a provocateur committing a misdemeanor), and all 50,000 can be arrested, charged with terrorism and given life sentences. That's what vague and loose wording leads to.

Do the google search yourself and look at the articles by the people fighting this thing. And if an abuse is possible, it WILL occur. This law is designed to lock people up en masse for exercising constitutional rights. The sponsor fits the definition of domestic terrorist in the USA PATRIOT Act. He is a criminal.

I'm not down on you, Ebbie. At least you argue your points, when others buckle. But we're on the same side, I expect. This Oregon debate is just a test case, and woe unto us if it passes.
