Alaska Cops Trying to Kill Bill that Would End State Cooperation with Federal Mass Surveillance

JUNEAU, Alaska (March 26, 2015) – An Alaska bill that would ban "material support or resources" to the NSA has bogged down in a Senate committee due to fierce opposition from state law enforcement lobbyists.

Alaska Sen. Bill Wielechowski filed SB13 in January. The legislation would prohibit the state and its municipalities from using assets, including personnel, to assist a federal agency in collecting certain telephone records or electronic data without a warrant.

The Alaska Peace Officers Association, the Alaska Association of Police Chiefs and the Anchorage Police Department all drafted letters expressing opposition to the legislation.

In its letter, the AAPC said, “While we will always follow the law and strive to protect the rights of the public, we cannot support legislation which serves to sever or limit our relationships with fellow officers who are adhering to federal law. It is crucial that state, local and federal agencies maintain the ability to share resources cooperate effectively to protect the citizens of Alaska.”

Their argument seems pretty dumb.


Considering what police have devolved into, their argument *is* dumb .... in more ways than I can count. Why do we tolerate organized political activities by police???
