The city is nuts. Protesters could have simply e-mailed their cellphone numbers to receive and send text messages to the exact same website. The city is just going on a fishing expedition because so many people were involved. Tad Hirsch ought to just flip them the finger. This is ridiculous. Notice that the FBI is not the one after Hirsch. They know better than asking someone why they staged a political demonstration. They are very respectful of those things, even when you don't want them to be. For instance, during the Civil Rights Era in the South. A protester would be having his/her skull split wide open, and the FBI would just take notes. A few hours later, they'd be sitting in church snooping on Martin Luther King.
