No Warrent Needed - Thanks Sen. Moore

I thought the folks in Massachusetts would be interested in reading this legislation that is soon to pass our congress:
"An Act Relative to Pandemic and Disaster Preparation and Response in the Commonwealth"
Here are the money quotes:
"Upon request or issuance of an order by the commissioner or his or her designee, or by a local public health authority or its designee, an officer authorized to serve criminal process may arrest **without a warrant** any person whom the officer has probable cause to believe has violated an order given to effectuate the purposes of this subsection and shall use reasonable diligence to enforce such order."
"An individual who is unable or unwilling to submit to vaccination or treatment shall not be required to submit to such procedures but may be isolated or quarantined pursuant to section 96 of chapter 111 if his or her refusal poses a serious danger to public health or results in uncertainty whether he or she has been exposed to or is infected with a disease or condition that poses a serious danger to public health, as determined by the commissioner, or a local public health authority operating within its jurisdiction."
"An order for isolation or quarantine may include any individual who is unwilling or unable to undergo vaccination, precautionary prophylaxis, medical treatment, decontamination, medical examinations, tests, or specimen collection and whose refusal of one or more of these measures poses a serious danger to public health or results in uncertainty whether he or she has been exposed to or is infected with a disease or condition that poses a serious danger to public health."
There is a reason why such laws never existed in the history of Massachusetts, because such a power grab by our government means that any leader can deem any person too sick to live in the public domain and lock that person up without a warrant. This is a disgrace, and I ask that you call, write, and meet with Senator Moore as soon as possible.
Moore's contact information can be found here:

I spoke with Senator Moore this morning and I asked him if he would trust Bush and Cheney with the power declare a health emergency and in turn grant themselves the right to start arresting people without a warrant and he said yes. He also said that the majority should rule always. I guess Moore doesn't believe in minority rights either. I just thought the voters would like to know this. This joker has got to go.
