I remember seeing local groups arming themselves to the teeth because the Federal government was supposed to be in some conspiracy with the UN . . .or some such garbage. Well some idiot named Timothy Mcvay then killed over 180 people because he bought into that logic.
I would rather have the Feds checking leads no matter how stupid they seem than going back to just focusing or organized crime and high profile murders and abductions cases.
So 5 minutes to clear a stupid call in from a clerk is not a hardship. The responses from this blog have been unbelievable. Whether you like it or not the CEO from SUN said a decade ago - the Internet has killed privacy. The gov if they aren't already, scanning email with algorithms which is designed to tell them when terrorist activity in underway. So this was a walk in the park compared to what is and what will be.
But given the choice between nuts who are armed to the teeth be they US citizens and some Jihad group or the US reading my stupid emails - I will take them reading the emails and chatting with me. The truth will set you free. If you aren't doing anything illegal you will not suffer.
