Who is the activist standing next to you? In a story from Wednesday's LA Times a man killed in a motorcycle accident turns out to have two identities. The first is his public role as a member of a peace group in Fresno, CA. However, when the local paper printed his obituary, the peace group found out the deceased was really an officer with a local law enforcement agency who was working undercover to infiltrate the group. The peace group has asked the California State Attorney General to investigate why their nonviolent organization was being spied on by the officer. Maybe this is a way of bringing back the TIPs program that Just-Trust-me John Ashcroft wanted to use to have neighbor watching neighbor. Works better in a police state though.
