CNN's Ed Lavendera reports that Congress is giving $100 million to pay security expenses for this summer's political conventions. Denver and St. Paul officials have said that the types of weapons being purchased are "top secret."
The ACLU is suing both cities to disclose how security money is being
ROBERTS: Pepper ball rifles, goo guns, sonic rays. some are wild rumors but some may not be. some may protect our political convention this year. Ed Lavandera in Denver where the democrats will meet and he's got more.
LAVENDERA: To prepare for this summer's political conventions, Congress is giving the host cities, Denver and St. Paul, Minnesota, $50 million each to pay for security expenses. But what exactly that money is being spent on is top secret here in denver.
NEWMAN: $25 million buys a lot of very interesting things.
LAVENDERA: Bob Newman is an anti-terrorism consultant, helping Denver companies prepare for the Democratic convention. He's anxious to see what kind of crowd control weaponry authorities will deploy for the convention.
NEWMAN: There are also crazy rumors going around.
LAVENDERA: City officials and the police department won't talk about most of the weapons and equipment they're buying.
FLEENER: This is your pepper rounds.
LAVENDERA: But confirmed one report several hundred thousands of high powered pepper ball rifles will be used to disperse crowds.
FLEENER: When that hits, the ball breaks, powder expels. the same reaction as pepper spray. Except it's powder.
LAVENERA: Congressional testimony revealed there will be specialized gas detection equipment and biohazard equipment. Then there are the science fiction-like weapons that may or may not be part of the arsenal, like the goo gun.
SECURITY CONSULTANT: It shoots a rubbery gelatin mass when it strikes the body and comes out in a stream it wraps around limbs and the torso and the person can't move.
LAVENERA: It can make a Humvee have spin in place. Then there are the weapons that would make unruly crowds run for cover like a sonic ray gun, a device which emits an ear piercing sound and a microwave device that can be focused on an area and can make you feel like your skin is on fire. The ACLU has sued the city of Denver to find out if these weapons are in the arsenal.
SILVERSTEIN: Instead of asking the public, "How come you want to know?" Maybe the question should posed to the government, "Why are you interested in keeping this secret?"
NEWMAN: Rational people are not concerned. Those concerned are the ones causing problems.
LAVENDERA: In Minnesota where republicans are holding their convention, the ACLU says it's trying to find out how security money is being spent but law enforcement agencies insist these weapons should be kept secret so they have the upper hand in keeping the convention safe.

More at http://www.theuptake.org. After the site and interior of the secret detention center in Denver, developed in anticipation of the DNC, was exposed, the Sheriff's Office decided they may as well give the media a tour to reassure public sentiment. Undersheriff Bill Lovingier showed TV, newspaper, radio, and new media around the facility, walking through the process a detainee would face.
One change made to the facility because of the media coverage and resulting community outrage is the removal of razor wire on the interior holding pens.
Lovingier explains the change and why the extra security is needed within the facility not just to prevent people from escaping, but also to prevent protest and counter-protest groups from clashing violently while being held.
The ACLU has raised a concern about the process, saying Colorado law requires lawyers to meet with their clients within the detention center. Lovingier sidestepped a question about this, saying only "you're correct, that is what the ACLU has said."
While students have every legal right under the First Amendment to stand and pray before school, the ACLU has still tried to stop them. What has happened? What is the problem? Learn2Discern our liberty in America. Distributed by Tubemogul.

From Operation Rescue South Dakota Abortion Group Caught On Tape Encouraging Voter Fraud
Sioux Falls, SD - A pro-abortion group, the Campaign for Healthy Families, was caught on tape admitting to voter fraud and encouraging others to engage in the illegal practice for the purpose of influencing the vote on Measure 11, the South Dakota abortion ban.
A man who wants only to be known as "Eduardo" visited the Souix Falls office of the Campaign for Healthy Families on October 20, 2008. There he was told that CFHF director Chris Cassidy, a resident of Oakland, California, was going to vote in the November election then return immediately to California. Eduardo was then told he could do the same thing even though he would be returning to his home in Riverside, California, immediately after the election.
This practice is illegal. Voters registering to vote in South Dakota must attest under penalty of perjury the following: "I actually live at and have no present intention of leaving the above address." Violations are punishable by up to two years in prison and a $4,000 fine.)
"This fraud casts a shadow of suspicion on the election outcome," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.
"First the ACLU bussed in activists from other states to influence the people of South Dakota, now we find out that some of the outsiders are actually trying to rip off the election from the people of South Dakota by voting illegally," said Newman. "We call on the authorities in that state to fully investigate the so-called Campaign for Healthy Families and charge those who are attempting to illegally steal the election."
SAY THIS PRAYER: Dear Jesus, I am a sinner and am headed to eternal hell because of my sins. I believe you died on the cross to take away my sins and to take me to heaven. Jesus, I ask you now to come into my heart and take away my sins and give me eternal life. http://www.armyofgod.com
