Typical B.S.. Any civil rights violations have already occured before the election even began. Do they actually believe that anyone violating someones civil rights would do it in front of an audiance. We have a sheriff in our area supposedly telling a business that anyone doing business there must have a photograph taken in order to sell recyclables. This is not only unreasonable but definitely a civil rights violation since the pictures are being taken by a general employee and would generally be regarded as hearsay evidence to any crime, but this can be regarded as being an unusual search and seizure. There are more and more of these types of things occuring and they are obviously unconstitutional, but the states seem to think that the constitution is just a piece of paper and not the law of the land. Can you just see Walmart taking a picture of everybody that they buy and sell to. It's illegal and the sheriff should realize that it is illegal. The federal government is wondering why the economy is on the skids. They should look at what the local authorities are doing and they will soon understand what is happening. The U.S. Government strictly forbids and armed army from operating in the United States and yet each day the local authorities are using every excuse to turn the citizens into prisoners. We have over-populated prisons today that are costing our government money that they do not have and the majority of these people are there because they were framed or someone failed to act rationally during testifying. There seems to be more people being convicted of crimes based on heresay. But requiring a person to have his photograph taken in order to sell to a private company is wrong in a state where a photo ID is already required. A copy of their photo ID would be a lot better and a little more legal than a photo taken by a camera that is hand held. The justice department and the commerce department are definitly not on the same page.
