Comments

Judge Hardin writes:

From here in the Starchamber I have recognized that absolute power corrupts even the finest law enforcement officers and jurists. Law enforcement needs to make their case. General criminality can never justify the loss of privacy that this bill seeks to place on the unwashed citizenry. Where is Ben Franklin when you need him.

Waldo Jaquith writes:

That was an incredibly esoteric reference.

Deputy Barney Fife writes:

This is great!

Do you know how many people in Mayberry I could lock up for overdue library books or expired dog licenses if I had access to databases like this?

Way to go Virginia!

Cardinal Ximinez writes:

Bravo! Who would have expected the reappearance over one thousand years later of the Spanish Inquisition in the laws of Virginia. Biggles, Fang! Poke them with the soft cushions! If that doesn't work put them in the comfy chair! Confess, confess, confess! (Admittedly,not as esoteric as Judge Hardin)

Lt. Harry Callahan, writes:

Looks like it's time for me to move to the Old Dominion.

Every time I pull a "black bag" job out here in California, or install a "do-it-yourself" wiretap on some scuzzball, these "civil liberties" types get their panties in a wad and I get screamed at by the Chief.

This Bill would make my life much easier.

So how about it, Virginians -- Do you feel "lucky?"
