FBI Could Investigate You

Randall County District Attorney James Farren Randall County District Attorney James Farren

FBI Agents could soon be allowed to investigate Americans without any evidence of wrongdoing, according to the Justice Department.

Justice Department officials say FBI Agents would rely on a terrorist profile that could single out Muslims, Arabs or other racial groups. Randall County District Attorney James Farren says this announcement by the Justice Department really doesn't change anything in relation to the personal rights of citizens.

Traditionally the FBI has been more restrictive than other agencies. All this does is put them on a level playing field with other agencies. Some of the other factors that could make someone the subject of an investigation... Recent travel to places known for terrorist activity, access to weapons or military training.

The purpose of giving FBI these extended privileges.... Making it easier for them to meet Congressional demand for security following the September 11th attacks.
