"In the latest Fox News poll, conducted Sept. 8-9 by Opinion Dynamics Corporation, fewer Americans think the U.S. is winning the war against terrorism (36 percent) than think we're losing (43 percent), with the remaining 21 percent undecided. The number thinking the U.S. is winning has dropped significantly since late November 2001 (67 percent 'winning'), as Americans have become less clear about the war on terrorism and as debate over Iraq clouds the waters."

"Trombino was twice victimized by terrorists as the FBI assembled a shocking picture of a network behind his attack. Weather Underground fugitives had assembled a coalition: Black Liberation Army, Puerto Rican FALN, Republic of New Africa & Communist May 19 Org. They’d pulled off at least 18 armed jobs of banks & armored cars of more than $1 million, freed terrorists from prisons, were poised to launch widespread urban guerilla warfare & operated for over 5 yrs without FBI being aware."
 

TX: Attention, Kmart suspects - Prosecutors will drop convictions, charges in raids

"City officials are dropping all charges against nearly 300 people arrested in two police raids last month, and will instead focus their investigation on the Police Department itself."

"Houston Mayor Lee Brown and acting Police Chief Timothy Oettmeier asked city prosecutors to drop trespassing and curfew charges against 273 people arrested at a westside Kmart and 25 others arrested at a James Coney Island restaurant Aug. 17 and 18."

"The city attorney's office said prosecutors will dismiss the charges and will have the convictions of those who pleaded guilty thrown out if they request it."

Sounds like a case of CYA on the part of the city -- they don't want to get sued.

"We are safer today than we were one year ago, but we are not immune to the dangers of the world."

"In the year since terrorists struck our homeland, our nation has rallied, and community groups and the government -- federal, state and local agencies -- have worked together and made great strides in bolstering our security. As a result, Americans are safer today than we were one year ago."

"This does not mean, however, that we are immune to the dangers of the world. So long as we live in the most open and free society on Earth, there are no guarantees that another determined terrorist won't reach his target."

"[Spokane, Washington Public Library Director Jan] Sanders and other librarians are unhappy with portions of the USA Patriot Act, which Congress passed in October 2001."

"The law makes it easier for agents to peek into homes, go through e-mail and voice mail, and quietly look at library records, credit-card bills and book purchases."

"It allows the FBI to obtain a search warrant from a secret court, by showing it has reason to suspect a person is linked to a terrorist or a terrorist plot. That's an easier hurdle than meeting the legal standards of probable cause required for traditional search warrants."

Bearded Belgians eager to play Osama bin Laden queued Wednesday to audition for a role in a film inspired by the Saudi born Islamic militant as the world remembered the victims of the 9-11 attacks.

Posing for cameramen with the would-be actors, some in turbans and robes, film director Rob Van Eyck admitted the timing of the audition was a publicity stunt.

"It's the only day when you are going to get such media coverage, when I did the casting in May, no one came" said the director.

"I was born in a country — Germany — that turned the confiscation of firearms into a brutally fine art during the 1930s and '40s. Do not even for a moment believe that it was done to make German streets safer."

"Meanwhile, back in the United States, the Constitution never says a word about us having to be fingerprinted, registered and otherwise policed by eager beaver law enforcement officials, but a number of state, city and county jurisdictions in this land already have enacted severe restrictions on the ownership of guns — all guns, including the ones we hunters use afield or on a shooting range."

Plans are brewing in the city of Baltimore, MD for a ban not only on shooting a paintgun, but also of ownership or possession of a paintgun.

The proposed ordinance also includes the following punishment. “Any person who violates any provision of this section is guilty of a misdemeanor and, on conviction, is subject to a fine or not more than $500 or to imprisonment for not more than 60 days or to both fine and imprisonment for each offense.”

"In another step toward realigning the government's law enforcement operations, the White House plans to ask Congress to consider moving the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms from the Treasury Department to the Justice Department, administration officials said yesterday."

"The proposal to shift [B]ATF to Justice follows President Bush's decision to send two other large Treasury agencies -- the U.S. Customs Service and the Secret Service -- to the proposed Department of Homeland Security."

"The decision to transfer those two agencies prompted Treasury to review where ATF would best fit in the government, a Treasury official said."

" 'We're very proud of ATF and the work that they have done,' the official said."

"ATF has about 5,000 employees and an annual budget of more than $850 million. The agency investigates bombing and arson cases and tries to prevent the illicit use of alcohol, tobacco and firearms."

"A Hutchinson news release cites Pryor’s 1991 and 1993 votes in the Arkansas House of Representatives against a measure to make it illegal for local governments to restrict gun ownership, his acceptance of a $2,000 donation from a pro-gun control group, and his decision not to sign on to a July letter thanking U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft for his support of the Second Amendment."

GREENBUSH, MAINE — "It took two intruders just a few minutes to learn a very valuable lesson Sunday night: Once a Marine, always a Marine. Especially if the Marine is Larry Leighton of Greenbush. After hours of searching for two men who had forced their way into the decorated former Marine sergeant’s home with a rifle, police found Shawn Cameron, 37, of Bangor as he was being treated for two gunshot wounds to his right leg, Maine State Police spokesman Stephen McCausland said. The second man who allegedly invaded Leighton’s home, Jack Monroe, 41, of Milford, was found driving a car on the Crocker Turn Road in Greenbush."

"Both men were taken to Penobscot County Jail and charged with terrorizing with a firearm, McCausland said. Both will make their initial court appearance in 3rd District Court in Bangor today."

FULL TEXT BELOW...
-------
Statement made Monday, September 9, 2002

"The significant 10 percent drop in violent crime rates throughout the nation is good news for all Americans, and a credit to the efforts and perseverance of those on the front lines of law enforcement. Firearms crimes have declined significantly, and criminal victimizations are at the lowest point since 1973 -- almost a 50 percent drop over the last 29 years. America's neighborhoods are more safe, and I applaud the men and women who fill the ranks of our local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. Their dedication, bravery and heroism is too often unsung. Going forward, we must remain vigilant in working to reduce crime and make our streets and communities as safe as possible."

" 'Attention: this facility is accessible to military and law enforcement only,' reads the sign bolted to a metal fence that encloses a four-acre compound in rolling flaxen hills. Only the sharp crackle of gunshots pierces the hot stillness in this secluded place."

"The dusty parking lot overflows with police cars and old military vehicles. Vigilant, gun-toting staffers greet all visitors. A long row of flags -- Old Glory, the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force-- lines one wall, official patches from police departments and military units line another in a low-slung building that houses The HALO Group Inc.'s no-frills offices."

"This isn't the kind of firearms training facility you'll find in the yellow pages. The HALO Group enlists a team of ex-military -- former Navy SEALs, Army Special Forces and Delta Team members -- to instruct law enforcement and military personnel." ...

QUESTION:

How many officers trained at this facility have used their training to violate the right of the people to keep and bear arms?

"The shooting death of an 11-year-old Modesto boy two years ago has sparked new recommendations to improve safety during SWAT team operations."

"Attorney General Bill Lockyer released a report Tuesday from a statewide group, the Attorney General's Commission on Special Weapons and Tactics, that reviewed tactical operations, training, policy and equipment."

"During a September 2000 pre-dawn raid in Modesto, a SWAT team entered a house looking for a man wanted for drug dealing. After ordering the family to the ground as they searched for the father, a team member's shotgun accidentally discharged and killed Alberto Sepulveda Jr."

QUESTION:

If a regular citizen shot a little boy in the back and the boy died, would this newspaper be merely saying the "shotgun accidentally discharged"?

NOTE:

This news rag not only failed to remind people of the boy-slaughtering officer's name and violent background, but they've also failed to mention that no drugs were found in this death-producing "drug" raid. Instead, they say the gun did it and suggest that AG Lockyer's non-binding "recommendations" have some relevance.

"Several federal and state laws concern civil libertarians, Arab-American activists and advocates for free speech on the Internet."

"Among them:

"* The U.S.A. Patriot Act, passed in October, which allows FBI agents to get a search warrant to review Internet communication if it determines it is 'relevant to an ongoing criminal investigation,' a far lower hurdle than the original standard of determining that it is likely a crime may have been committed before conducting a search."

"The act also allows for the broad sharing of grand jury information in criminal cases with intelligence agencies, including the CIA, without getting approval from a judge first."

"* The state eased search-warrant requirements in terrorist investigations, meaning law enforcement does not have to show evidence of actual criminal activity to get a judge to approve a search."

"The federal law making it easier to investigate Internet communication allows the FBI to determine what Web sites a person has visited. That power could easily be abused by the government to violate people's privacy, Moss and several Internet users groups said."

"Could Tom Ridge have said anything scarier or more telling as he accepted the post of homeland security czar? Trying to strike the bell of liberty, he sounds its death knell, depicting government not as the agent of the people's will, but as an imperious power with the authority to give us our democratic freedoms. Which means, of course, that it can also take them away."

"That's exactly what Ashcroft, Bush, Cheney & co. have been up to all year as, in the attorney general's words, the government has marshaled the might of 'every available statute' to root out 'the terrorists among us.' Wrapping themselves in the flag, they have shredded the Constitution. They have sneered at, ignored, or defied the courts and legislatures that are designed to provide checks and balances on uninhibited executive power. They have eroded the precious Bill of Rights protections of free speech, assembly, and association and its assurances of privacy, due process, equal protection, legal counsel, and a fair trial—practically everything but the right to bear arms."

WELL, UMMM....

Actually, the Bush/Ashcroft regime fought to keep the Supreme Court from hearing two valid and pivotal Second Amendment cases, they've ignored the Petition for the Enforcement of the Second Amendment, and their insistence on federally prosecuting local "gun crimes" has received a great deal of support, as well. So the right to keep and bear arms has indeed suffered under the current emperor, unfortunately.

"President Bush defended new limits on legal rights imposed by his administration in the war on terror, declaring that 'the Constitution is sacred' and will not be undermined in the effort to improve Americans' security."

"In an interview with a 60 Minutes II special broadcast airing Wednesday night on the anniversary of the terrorist attacks, Bush said he is pleased with the job being done by the Justice Department, despite criticism from civil liberties groups that Americans' individual freedoms are being eroded."

"Among the Bush administration moves that have come under criticism are new authority in terror cases to imprison Americans indefinitely, allowing federal agents to monitor attorney-client conversations in federal prisons, the detention of thousands of Middle Eastern men who entered the United States since 2000 and immigration hearings that are no longer public."

Gun control? It's the best thing you can do for crooks and gangsters. I want you to have nothing. If I'm a bad guy, I'm always gonna have a gun. Safety locks? You will pull the trigger with a lock on, and I'll pull the trigger. We'll see who wins. — Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, whose testimony convicted John Gotti.
