FBI broke law for years in phone record searches

• Washington Post
The FBI illegally collected more than 2,000 U.S. telephone call records between 2002 and 2006 by invoking terrorism emergencies that did not exist or simply persuading phone companies to provide records, according to internal bureau memos and interviews. FBI officials issued approvals after the fact to justify their actions.

One thing the American People need to realize is no one is standing up and saying things to make real change (except a few like Ron Paul), so....why it is business as usual? What is getting stuck in the gears of change or to make change? Couple of things to ponder. First, when anyone breaks the law, it is not business as usual! Nor should be with government! I say this should be exactly that! If you break the law, thats IT! NO MORE CONTINUING ON TIL WHOEVER IS GUILTY IS TAKEN CARE OF.  There cannot be a double standard! This also goes another way. Whenever a government public servant is guilty of wrong doing and especially the police, we the people cannot and should not pay out the lawsuit money for the guilty deed! Makes no sense! I say, make those that are guilty pay with their own money and that way we will weed out those that are not responsible! We must stop paying out for those that are guilty of wrong doing in Government!

And this is a surprise???  Law Enforcement has forever shown that if it is given an inch it will take a yard;  shurg its shoulders if caught, apologize, then start trying to gain the yard back.
