    Since every study done (no matter who did it) has found NO abuses of the act, and it does provide necessary options for investigating suspected terrorists, I have no problem with it.

    Heck, if Pelosi can support it anyone should be able to.

    I don't see anything good about it, everything I've read makes it sound like a huge invasion of privacy.

    I'm glad we don't have to put with that stuff here.

    ...no abuses? No need to study it, it's happening right in front of you. Last year, when everyone was still paranoid, a friend of my sister's got into a fight with his no-good-brother. They weren't punching or anything, just shouting, but seeing as how it was late at night, the neighbors called the police. The police came and took my sister's friend away (and the brother stayed!), and no one ever saw him again. He was juuust about to graduate college, too. Same with my dad's friends down in Texas. Just because they were middle-eastern? Hundreds of "terrorist suspects" are shivering in some prison in the middle of nowhere, still wondering what got them in there, and wondering whether their family knows where they are (which they don't).

    My family is lying low and trying not to get mingled with the law, for fear that something like that might happen to us.

    *snorts* No abuses...

    I seriously doubt that. Doesn't matter how you look at it, Thats Kidnapping. and the whole "My friends brother got into a fight with their sister", sounds like one of those "Friend of a friend of mine" stories.

    Yeah it's kidnapping. But the government can seriously take you away and put you somewhere else if you are suspected of being a terrorist. I knew the guy he was quiet and really smart and excited to graduate!
