Burglars Who Took On F.B.I. Abandon Shadows
They should spy on “anti-war”, civil rights and dissident groups. They were communists seeking to violently overthrow the US government. Treason ! Carl E.
There is no crime to being “anti-war” supportive of civil rights, or being a dissident. In fact, the fact that these violations of the Fourth Amendment existed proved the need for their exposure. There is certainly a difference between those who seek to violently overthrow the government and someone who peacefully protests or even “breaks the law” in order to expose an even greater violation of the law.
“The truth is that all men having power ought to be mistrusted.” —James Madison
Especially for people like Daniel Ellsberg and Edward Snowden, they kept their oath to uphold the Constiution, while breaking their promise to not share secrets.
I do not trust government to spy on anyone without due process, and it is clear that “due process” has been practically eliminated. In any case, government must always be held accountable by the citizens and give an account when demanded. They are the servants, not the masters!
