Terror laws and common crimes
Salon.com: New terror laws used vs. common criminals: "A North Carolina county prosecutor charged a man accused of running a methamphetamine lab with breaking a new state law barring the manufacture of chemical weapons. If convicted, Martin Dwayne Miller could get 12 years to life in prison for a crime that usually brings about six months.
Prosecutor Jerry Wilson says he isn't abusing the law, which defines chemical weapons of mass destruction as 'any substance that is designed or has the capability to cause death or serious injury' and contains toxic chemicals. "
Hmmmm. Any cigarette manufacturers in North Carolina? Pesticide makers? Air polluters?
Thanks to Dan Gillmor for this link.
