Edina resident Helen Risser wins the coveted Spotty™ for this letter in the Star Tribune today, Tuesday, September 28th.
Given the information reported in the Sept. 25 front-page article "Terrorism probe prompts FBI raids," there seems to be a clear case of injustice.
A person's opposition to war is no grounds for suspecting them of having terrorism links.
Among the first rights guaranteed to us in our Constitution are freedom of speech, freedom to protest and freedom of assembly.
The Fourth Amendment protects against unreasonable search and seizure.
If these no longer matter in the struggle to end terrorism, what law does apply?
HELEN RISSER, EDINA
Remember, boys and girls, a Spotty™ is awarded to the author of an op-ed piece, a letter to the editor, or a blog post or comment that Spot wishes he had written himself.
