Free Speech? Charlie Joseph CharlieJ cajoseph@us.hsanet.net That's the damned if you do/damned if you don't predicament faced by law enforcement.

Whenever some flake does something terrible, everyone wants to know why they weren't stopped beforehand. "There were signs" etc. etc.

But when authorities do act on suspicion or even reasonable cause before an event, every body goes nuts over infringement of civil liberties, etc.

Ever wonder how many times police were devastated in court for violating someone's civil rights, when what they actually did was prevent another Columbine. But you'll never know. There's no way to measure.
