Good for this judge!!!! Three salutes!!

I wonder if a company has a comprehensive list of legislators involved with this statutory abomination? Again I point to the errant nature of our legal leadership under Justice Rehnquist, a man from my home state. Justice Scalia too vastly underestimated the impact the database would have on plain liberty. Talk about ” loose rhetoric ” consider his statement
“I would think the United States Government ought to be able use databases for anything they damn well please.” AND ” Congress can continue and should continue to make law to regulate and punish sex offenders. ” While each statement is generally presumed true of free people’s government, or any gov for that matter, neither statement implies constitutional concerns at all. And this group wonders how we got here, to this law????. Inevitable!!!

When your stalker is the government, you need a restraining order.

I listened to NARSOL’s phone conference tonight. The TRO has been extended until completion of the litigation.
