Before You Flee For Your Life, Your Papers, Shnell!

Next time, evacuees subject to criminal checks

"Texans seeking to escape the next hurricane or state emergency by evacuation bus will first be submitted to criminal background checks, the state's emergency management director says."

ok so say their intent IS to keep people who have been charged with sexual assault and other violent crimes away from those who have no violent criminal background--where are they going to house these people? are they so naive to think a pedophile is going to molest a child on a bus in front of the parents and other adults? and who is to say this won't be abused? i can see some non-violent person with an mj charge being hauled off. or someone with a DUI. or shoplifting. or what about those folks who have been arrested during anti-government demonstrations.

i ain't buying it. even scarier to me are the words from Colley: "you have the right to privacy but not anonymity."

oh really now...

Just one more indication that officials have lost the ability to see people as human beings. They see people as guilty perps who have to prove their worthiness for consideration.
