Oppose the Culture War on Raves

Oppose the Culture War on Raves

Members of both the House and Senate are attempting to pervert proper
legislative processes by appending two unrelated provisions to the
popular Amber Alert measure. One of the two provisions would target raves
-- a social event that mixes electronic music, light shows and dancing;
the other provision would seek to limit the discretion of federal
judges.

The rave provision would make building owners liable for their tenants'
and customers' activities. For example, even if they instituted
excellent security precautions, restaurant, bar, nightclub, dance and music
venue owners could all be fined hundreds of thousands of dollars and
forced into bankruptcy if a customer sneaked in drugs. No matter how much
security is put in place, they could be held responsible for the
actions of just one customer.

The federal sentencing provision would require the Justice Department
to report to Congress every time federal judges use their discretion to
impose a lower sentence than recommended under federal sentencing
guidelines. This would intimidate judges and prevent them from using their
judgement when handing down sentences.

These anti-civil liberties amendments should have full legislative
review and not be allowed to piggyback on more popular, yet unrelated,
legislation.

legislative process for these provisions:
