Terrorist "Security Threat Group"

That is how the Maryland State Police labeled those who partook in critical mass rides after spying on them. According to the State Police, the "Intentions" of this terrorist group are as follows:

The idea is about asserting the cyclists[sic] right to the road and not denying the rights of others.

Another group on which the State Police spied were "angry consumers fighting a 72 percent electricity rate increase in 2006."

It's quite reassuring that "intelligence officers" in the business of thwarting terrorism are this far removed from reality.

Maryland tax dollars at work, as well as our federal tax dollars that went to help Maryland "fight terrorism."

This story from the Washington Post is here and here.
