"Since 9-11 freedom invasion policies and federal surveillance of law-abiding citizens has escalated to a previously unimaginable scale in America and is reaching the point where our domestic policy is beginning to resemble that of the Nazi Germany era. We are already at a point where the Constitution and the average citizen are under siege. A watched people are NOT free. Program after program is being rapidly implemented under the pretext of fighting terrorism."

"A year after riots erupted over the police shooting of a black man, the city agreed Wednesday to restrictions on the use of force and announced plans to establish an agency to investigate police brutality complaints.

The moves are intended to satisfy U.S. Justice Department concerns and settle a lawsuit accusing the police force of harassing blacks for the past 30 years. The settlement of the lawsuit must still be approved by the various parties by Tuesday to avoid a trial."

Fawning Critics Don't Say Book Was Fraud

"Bellesiles turns out to have quoted sources out of context, to have falsely reported data, and to have claimed to have used documents that have not existed since the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. One historian familiar with Bellesiles’ work called it a case of "bona fide academic fraud." Emory University is investigating."

"It is, I suppose, conceivable that Bellesiles will manage to convince people that he was merely guilty of extraordinary sloppiness and not outright fraud, but regardless of his state of mind, his book is now well-established as untrustworthy."

"...But then interest sagged. Fewer guns were turned in. The program sucked money and manpower from local police departments that helped to run it."

"Now, organizers of the Tampa Bay gun buyback program have decided to cancel this year's trade-ins. Instead, the group will focus its efforts on gun safety education and awareness, which includes a billboard campaign, firearms safety classes and giving away free gun locks at local police departments."

"A Republican-sponsored measure to allow the death penalty for terrorists who kill Californians was rejected yesterday in an Assembly committee, prompting GOP charges that Democrats dumped Sept. 11-inspired unity for party politics. Assembly Democrats snuffed out the death penalty bill and two other related GOP measures in what observers called a preview of partisan battles to come. There are nearly 100 terrorism bills in the legislative pipeline during this election year."

"Support for expanded high-tech government surveillance gradually has diminished during the six months following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, new Harris Poll figures show."

"While a majority of Americans continue to favor expanded surveillance by law agents in the war against terror, the poll shows that support has declined modestly. In one category – expanded government surveillance of cell phone and email traffic – supporters now are in the minority, the poll indicates."

Newslinks Director Sidenote: This poll actually does represent real people's answers (I was in it!) -- but that in itself doesn't prove how accurate or inaccurate the results are.

"For some young hunters, learning to turkey hunt can be very exasperating. Misjudging distance, shaking and too much movement can ruin a day’s hunt. One of the first things I tell a young hunter who has a problem with getting the shakes is they need to hunt more to get used to seeing turkeys. Many times when I am hunting and call up a good, mature bird, I still get the shakes."

- Northland House members split evenly on a party vote over "allowing" motorists to carry concealed weapons in vehicles -

"The Democrat-controlled House approved House bill 1344 on a bipartisan basis, 107-46 vote March 20. Reps. Bill Skaggs, Phil Willoughby and Meg Harding - all Northland Democrats - opposed the bill."

"I own guns and shoot, hunt and do those things, but I don't need a loaded gun in my glove box or under my front seat," Skaggs said. Road rage cases are heard regularly on area police scanners. Skaggs said road rage makes "concealed-carry" in cars undesirable."
