I don't know if this story is true or not. It's hard to verify since the name of the restaurant was left out, as were the names and badge numbers of any law enforcement agents involved. However, this raid is DEFINATELY POSSIBLE given the legislation recently passed by congress. Read this story and be afraid. This is what happens when you give authoritarian conservatives unfettered power. Now, I'm not one of those who thinks that 9/11 was a plot to take away our freedoms, but it does seem to be working out that way doesn't it. Read the PATRIOT Act if you haven't. It is truly frightening. I think Ashcroft should be fired immediately, if not charged, for writing legislation which DOES NOT abide by the rules set forth by the constitution.
