President Bush on the Patriot Act:
"The legislation strengthens the Justice Department so it can better detect and disrupt terrorist threats."

Apparently, the term terrorists now applies to ....Cock-Fighters.... as the FBI is now using "Sneak-and-Peak" warrants (we can search your property in secret without serving you warrant) to investigate people who kill Chickens for fun and profit.

Acting under the authority of the Patriot Act, the agents had obtained
a search warrant that allowed them to clandestinely enter the property,
search for evidence and not tell anyone about it until the government
or a judge was ready to let the owners know they’d been there.

As if we needed another reminder that the Federal government cannot be trusted to protect our civil liberties.
Restraint is not a concept the FBI, CIA, NSA, or any alphabet group seems to understand.
