"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Protecting Midnight Desert Hikers, Weenie Roasters and "Alleged" Criminals

Finally someone is doing something to protect American citizens; my hero Democratic Representative Kyrsten Sinema.

The legislation is being introduced to protect the many Americans, especially in the SW portion of the country that enjoy all the weenie roasts and marshmallow toasting going on in the area between the borders of the U.S.A. and Mexico.

Because of the rare instances of “illegal activity” along our southern border it is also necessary to protect those families that enjoy midnight hikes in the desert, Boyscouts that train and practice “escape and evade” maneuvers and the thousands of desert cookouts without fire that take place on a 24 hour basis in no mans land.

I applaud Ms. Sinema’s efforts at protecting those that would be lumped in with any “alleged illegal activity” in the borderlands of our nation.

From the Arizona Daily Star:

PHOENIX — A proposed new law would make felons out of members of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps — and probably some neighborhood watch groups.

HB 2286 would make it a crime for any individual or group not affiliated with law enforcement to patrol "to detect alleged illegal activity" if armed. Violators would be subject to up to 18 months in state prison.

The proposal by Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Phoenix, does not name names. But she said it is specifically aimed at the Minuteman organization "and other vigilante groups" that patrol the border looking for those entering the country illegally.”

According to the legislation HB2286, it will protect us from Domestic Terrorism.


Sec. 2. Title 13, chapter 23, Arizona Revised Statutes, is amended by adding section 13-2320, to read:

START_STATUTE13-2320. Domestic terrorism; classification

A. An individual or group of individuals commits domestic terrorism if the individual or group of individuals are not affiliated with a local, state or federal law enforcement entity and associate with another individual or group of individuals as an organization, group, corporation or company for the purpose of patrolling to detect alleged illegal activity or to individually patrol for the purpose of detecting alleged illegal activity and if the individual or group of individuals is armed with a firearm or other weapon.

B. Any city, town or county that suffers injury arising out of a violation of this section may maintain an action in superior court for the recovery of damages or for an injunction, or both. the court may award the successful party reasonable attorney fees.

C. If the court sentences the defendant to a term of probation, the court shall order that as an initial condition of probation the defendant be imprisoned in the county jail for a period of not less than six months. This jail term of incarceration shall not be deferred, deleted or otherwise suspended and shall commence on the date of sentencing. THis subsection does not apply to persons who are sentenced to serve a period of incarceration in the state department of corrections.

D. A violation of this section is a class 5 felony.

Can I get a clue over here please…..
