The PATRIOT Act Bears Fruit

"George W. Bush is out of control."

Should those words be enough to arrest a man in a public library?

William Rivers Pitt asks that question in Arrest Me. And it's not hypothetical. Andrew O'Conner was arrested in a public library and interrogated by Secret Service agents. Using the Patriot act, the police monitored his internet chat session at the St. John's College Library in Santa Fe.

This isn't some paranoid conspiricy theory bullshit. It happened. The American Library Association confirms it. So does the Santa Fe New Mexican. It happened. And it's going to keep on happening until the PATRIOT Act is repealed like the Alien and Sedition Acts were. It must be repealed. Join the ACLU and help us fight against it.
