A Police Force Rebuffs F.B.I. on Querying Mideast Men A Police Force Rebuffs F.B.I. on Querying Mideast Men

By FOX BUTTERFIELD

The Portland, Ore., police will not cooperate with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in its efforts to interview 5,000 young Middle Eastern men nationwide because such questioning violates state law, the department’s acting police chief, Andrew Kirkland, said yesterday.

The decision is the first known case of a city’s refusing to go along with the antiterrorism effort, which was announced last week by Attorney General John Ashcroft.

Maybe this is payback from the people of Oregon who are not exactly happy with Ashcroft for trying to subvert the majority vote in Oregon concerning an individuals right to end his/her own suffering?
