This is very good news. The more memos we see going out, the more we can trust that our public servants will be aware of our rights. More importantly, they will be aware of the statutes they are to enforce.
I don't like that we continue to be painted as lawsuit seekers, but if that's what it takes to get these guys to respect our rights, then so be it. I want every cop worried that (s)he'll be dragged through IA and sued if (s)he violates my rights. Too bad some of them actually need this motivation to deter such actions.
Of course, it is troublesome that this memo is put out by a "terrorism threat assessment" dept. Maybe it has to do with the fact I was reading Senator Ron Paul's book titled The Revolution. It's a sad waste of our tax dollars if they're actually wasting their resources keeping tabs on this group.
ETA: Bill, thanks for posting this. It is truly reassuring to see that the squeaky wheels may be getting the grease after all.
