Activists Under Surveilance By Maryland State Police

Posted in Politics by Arasmus on October 24, 2008

According to current Maryland Police Superintendent, Terrence B. Sheridan (who has invited the suspects to view their files before they are deleted) the surveilance campaign targeted opponents of the death penalty and the Iraq war. The surveillance took place over 14 months in 2005 and 2006, under the administration of former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (Republican). The former state police superintendent who authorized the operation, Thomas E. Hutchins, defended the program in testimony yesterday before a legislative hearing. Hutchins said the program was a bulwark against potential violence and called the activists “fringe people.” For more details you can read the Washington Post article here.
