American Police State Goes Into High Gear
Prison Planet | April 9 2004
The past few weeks have seen an explosion of police state measures and bombshell attacks on the God-given freedoms of American citizens. It is vital that we communicate these abuses to the wider public and attempt to redress this disgusting attack on the bill of rights.
Note: Kelly Rushing of Lion County, Kentucky, is facing a year in jail for giving a police officer a videotape. He was arrested for 'terroristic threatening'. An article written by Alex Jones on this case and what you can do to help will follow. Today's edition of the Alex Jones Show will also be posted in full.

Bill of Rights no longer valid in Louisiana
Almost as frightening as this horrendous decision is the staggering amount of apathy that has resulted from it. CNN barely mentioned it in its infinitely annoying ticker, and Headline News had a brief sixty-second story before going to their batch of "wacky, but true" stories.
Kiss the 4th Amendment Goodbye

Another 4th Amendment Bombshell: Right to Refuse ID Rejected
By a 4-3 vote, the Nevada Supreme Court rejected Mr. Hiibel's appeal, ruling any privacy right guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is "outweighed by the benefits to officers and community safety" by allowing police to force people to provide ID, anywhere.
2) The 1st Amendment Is Almost Dead

First Amendment specialists questioned the legal basis yesterday for a deputy US marshal -- apparently acting on the orders of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia -- to confiscate and erase tape recordings made by two reporters invited to hear the justice speak at a high school gymnasium.
Man Goes to Jail for Puting a Sign in his Yard
A man jailed for contempt for displaying yard signs critical of a Jackson County judge eventually got the signs back and was able to give the judge some advice — from a panel that investigates judges.
Neighbours call police on man flying upside-down US flag
Evey says his decision to buy a brand new flag from E.T.’s Military Surplus and deliberately fly it upside down followed months of deliberation. “It’s a signal of distress,” he said. “I’m convinced that our country is in distress because our government has run amuck.”
