    • Do cops in New Mexico just not have enough to do? I mean, there’s no crime there or anything, so they have to harass and humiliate innocent people who were just minding their own business?

      • Coyote says:

        LEOs in New Mexico are truly corrupt. It’s one of the reasons I moved from there. I grew up with some guys who are now NM LEOs at all levels. They are NOT well educated and are everything you think of when it comes to being a “cop”. They were bullied in grade school, they have low self-esteem, and they have small-man-syndrome.

        It is not worth living in NM. Just my opinion…but go ahead. Make your way to “The Land of Entrapment”. See for yourself. I don’t care.

  5. Knight4GFC says:

    “One of the newly-released documents, dated Aug. 18, 2006, details how the FISC court approved a request from then-FBI Director Robert Mueller for ‘all call-detail records’ or ‘telephony meta data.'”

    • Knight4GFC says:

      You really think this is going to curb snooping on American citizens? This is all about “damage control”… that’s all. If they are lucky, they may even “relax” the laws and bring Snowden home.

      • solaratov says:

        Only if Snowden has a death wish.

        • Knight4GFC says:

          Of course… I got carried away trying to paint a rainbow.

          However, if they wanted Snowden dead, he would be so. He was let go for a reason… perhaps for distraction purposes or to create a crisis, a national security issue – a reason for more big bully control. I find it hard to believe that he got away with, “he’s got everything”, as easily as it seemed. There is a very good chance this was allowed. Okaaay… I am now wearing tinfoil… hey! I see a rainbow! 😀
