Patriot Act Illegal in CA
    #1559853 - 05/19/03 01:25 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Heh. You guys'll get a kick out of this. I figured I post it here, as this gets more discussion than the News folder. Read the abstract, then the full link is posted under it.

ARCATA, California (AP) -- More than 100 cities and one state have passed resolutions condemning the USA Patriot Act, saying it gives the federal government too much snooping power. But in this liberal fold of Northern California's Redwood Curtain, a simple denouncement just doesn't go far enough.

To cooperate with the act, the City Council says, is criminal.

Starting this month, a new city ordinance would impose a fine of $57 on any city department head who voluntarily complies with investigations or arrests under the aegis of the Patriot Act, the anti-terrorism bill passed after September 11.

fed law usually trumps state law (when national security is involved)...but it's still funny.

Sweet! Fight the power.

Good to hear that all it takes to get big brother off your back is $57.00.

aww fuck this might be bad...

maybe next terrorist attack will be here in California now so they can go "hey SEE?! we fucking told you guys to support the patriot act.. now if you'll sign here please we can get patriot act II up and running"

HOWEVER, this is certainly great news as of now as long as its not part of some gay master plan

Great idea.

Hopefully more municipalities will follow their lead. I realize that it is a symbolic gesture only (Fed law trumps state and municipal laws as we have seen with DEA busting Marijuana Compassion Clubs, Ed Rosenthal, etc.), but it is a symbolic gesture with a VERY strong message.

Three cheers for Arcata!
