If You See Something, Say Something
Over the years, and especially in the post-9/11 pseudo-police state, government at all levels has encouraged citizens to spy on one another and report any suspicious behavior to the authorities.
The Department of Homeland Security says that its program is "a simple and effective program to raise public awareness of indicators of terrorism and terrorism-related crime, and to emphasize the importance of reporting suspicious activity to the proper local law enforcement authorities."
But who reports what, and to whom, when the suspicious or illegal activity is being performed by government agents?
Patrick Henry once cautioned, "Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel." Each of us, then, should "say something" when we see the government violating liberty.
And that's what this page is for. Did you witness police abuse? Are you being oppressed by burdensome regulations? Did a bureaucrat tell you to comply with something that you feel is illegal? Perhaps you're a government employee and have inside information to waste, fraud, or other abuses of power.
Whatever it is, it's important that as citizens we highlight areas of concern within the government, and draw attention to issues or instances where the agents of our delegated power have turned on us.
