New assault on our Bill of Rights! - Frightening!

These company representatives receive terrorist threats directly from the FBI and report information about disgruntled employees to the FBI. Such two-way reporting often bypasses law enforcement and State officials. In one stunning incident, Governor Gray Davis of California received a perceived threat to California bridges from his brother who was in InfraGard and not from the FBI. The potential for abuse is staggering. What is even more disturbing is the carte blanch permission given by the FBI to InfraGard to use lethal force in the event of martial law or an emergency. Under such conditions, InfraGard would be 'deputized' by the FBI to conduct law enforcement activities with complete impunity. Such gross misuse of our tax dollars is insane and must be halted. This is yet another example of how our Bill of Rights is being usurped by an over intrusive administration. I urge concerned readers to contact their legislators and demand this 'wild west' program be aborted.
