We, in Palo Alto, have many concerns about the Patriot Act, NSA surveillance, etc.
But here comes one of our own, Judy Kleinberg, to threaten us by turning our own comments, on public forums (or local coffee houses) over to the police. Unbelievable!!!
Here is her quote from the 8/13 PADN (related to the recent crime wave in PA, with racial description issues included):
"We need to clamp down before someone gets the wrong idea", said Kleinberg, who has forwarded some of the more "disturbing" messages she has come across to the Police Department.
"I'm not here to be an ethics cop, but it's wrong to be putting these statements out there", she said. "There's no purpose. To me, it's morally unethical and dangerous."
In other words, Judy thinks any statements that are not "morally ethical" (to her), should be forwarded to the cops. Should we now be thinking that the local police will be demanding access to PADN or Weekly computers, in order to identify those who disagree with Judy?
Forget the Patriot Act, we have much more serious issues on the local home front.
