O.C. Register on Robbins
Today's Orange County Register has an editorial on the Robbins case. Excerpt:
In a society that respected individual freedom, the agents who harassed Mr. Robbins would face prosecution. Instead, they are exonerated, and the government itself arrogantly demands a right to harass individual citizens because – get this – the Constitution does not specifically forbid harassment by such officials. If the Supreme Court sides with the Bureau of Land Management, then the rule of law will be eroded, and we will all be subject to the whims of the most abusive government officials. A decision is not expected until early summer.
