Fusion center director: We don't spy on Americans, just anti-gov't Americans

Law enforcement intelligence-processing fusion centers have long come under attack for spying on Americans. The Arkansas director wanted to clarify the truth: centers only spies on some Americans – those who appear to be a threat to the government.

In trying to clear up the ‘misconceptions’ about the conduct of fusion centers, Arkansas State Fusion Center Director Richard Davis simply confirmed Americans’ fears: the center does in fact spy on Americans – but only on those who are suspected to be ‘anti-government’.

“The misconceptions are that we are conducting spying operations on US citizens, which is of course not a fact. That is absolutely not what we do,” he told the NWA Homepage, which supports KNWA-TV and Fox 24.

After claiming that his office ‘absolutely’ does not spy on Americans, he proceeded to explain that this does not apply to those who could be interpreted as a ‘threat’ to national security. Davis said his office places its focus on international plots, “domestic terrorism and certain groups that are anti-government. We want to kind of take a look at that and receive that information.”

How do they tell which is which before they start spying and how do you confirm they've stopped spying on the American Americans?

You're not very compassionate.

The free market will solve it. And if it doesn't, then it's most efficient for Libertarians to be spied on.

At first they came for the libertarians, and I laughed at them and said "you know since I disagree with your views you kinda deserve it"

If they don't care about poor people dying because they don't have health care, or experiencing wage exploitation, or the many numerous things they believe in their war against the poor and middle class, it's a little rich to expect me to care that someone can see and hear them.
