EVERYONE WHO SAID THE DEPT. OF HOMELAND SECURITY WOULD QUICKLY EXCEED ITS MISSION was just being paranoid, right?
Federal authorities are cracking down on crimes by child predators by pulling together once-fragmented investigative and intelligence resources, Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge said Wednesday.
The initiative, dubbed Operation Predator, will target pornographers, child prostitution rings, Internet predators, immigrant smugglers and other criminals.
The new program described in this article isn't excess or abusive. After all, children need to be secure. And they live in the homeland. So you're still being paranoid if you think this exceeds the department's authority. (Not to mention that if you object to this latest destruction of constitutional government, all your neighbors will think you're in favor of child molesting and kiddie porn. Sigh.)
(Thanks old friend EG for the heads up.)
