Unwarranted and Illegal Information Mining

Attorney General Eric Holder has officially declared... “Unwarranted information mining of all US citizens is to be executed immediately."  Now, without any federal oversight the US government will collect, search and store data about ALL Americans.  No longer will it be just those suspected of terrorism.  Now, all American citizens are enemies of the Federal government and as such all American citizens will be treated as domestic terrorists.

The US Justice Department, State and local law enforcement and all the other national security agencies can NOW copy entire databases, public and private, then data mine them for any minutiae, illegal or otherwise.   The Federal double speak tries to sidestep this draconian truth by pretending that what they really are doing is sifting through the data for suspicious patterns to stop potential terrorist threats.

Sure, and I have a bridge for sale.

No where in the United States Constitution does it state that law enforcement is allowed to side step the clause on 'ILLEGAL Search and Seizure" because they 'MIGHT' find something illegal.

You know what I checked...

Fourth Amendment to the  United States Constitution

The right of the people to be secure in their persons,
houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable
searches and seizures, shall not be violated; and no
warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported
by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the
place to be

What law enforcement is doing is blatantly trampling on the 4th Amendment rights of all law abiding US citizens.  These illegal data mining operations should be under the jurisdiction of our courts.  That's why we have a Justice department so that when a WARRANT is necessary it is provided through DUE PROCESS of the law.

The Attorney General, Federal, State, and local law enforcement and all the other national security agencies who engage in warrant-less data mining on LAW ABIDING US citizens are in clear violation of the 4th Amendment to the constitution.

Again, I ask you...

Where is the Oversight?

Who is protecting the American people?
