Maryland police and their weird war on ‘terror’

There are more and more of these stories cropping up.
Taken with the article above, we are going back to the future: 1984

The troopers zeroed in on Roman Catholic nuns,
human rights activists and church groups.
They monitored animal rights advocates and cyclists
pushing for more bicycle lanes. They opened a dossier on Amnesty International. (That group’s crime was listed as “human rights.”)
The troopers created files with titles like:
“Terrorism: Anti-War Protesters,” and
“Terrorism: Anti-Govern,” and
“Terrorism: Environmental Extremists,” and
“Terrorism: Pro-Life.”
To Maryland’s finest, even Quakers, the ultimate pacifists,
constituted a “security
threat group.”
