    Sure it is. Your right to privacy is a civil right. When that right is violated, then you're civil rights are being violated. Surely, you're not one of those Libbos that thinks that, "civil rights", only apply to black folks?

    It doesn't matter if he was, "harmed". A person doesn't have to be, "harmed", to have their rights violated. Are you saying it's ok to violate a person's civil rights, as long as no harm is done?

    Whomever violated Joe's civil rights should be tried and if convicted, they should be punished. I think it's sad that Helen Kelly only got fired for her civil rights violations.

    They should be charged in accordance with the law. It's not right to charge them with a lesser crime, just because their victim is a white, America male.

    It appears that a Federal law has been violated and should be investigated by the FBI.

    Title 18, U.S.C., Section 242
    Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law
    This statute makes it a crime for any person acting under color of law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom to willfully deprive or cause to be deprived from any person those rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution and laws of the U.S.

    This law further prohibits a person acting under color of law, statute, ordinance, regulation or custom to willfully subject or cause to be subjected any person to different punishments, pains, or penalties, than those prescribed for punishment of citizens on account of such person being an alien or by reason of his/her color or race.

    Acts under "color of any law" include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the bounds or limits of their lawful authority, but also acts done without and beyond the bounds of their lawful authority; provided that, in order for unlawful acts of any official to be done under "color of any law," the unlawful acts must be done while such official is purporting or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties. This definition includes, in addition to law enforcement officials, individuals such as Mayors, Council persons, Judges, Nursing Home Proprietors, Security Guards, etc., persons who are bound by laws, statutes ordinances, or customs.

    Punishment varies from a fine or imprisonment of up to one year, or both, and if bodily injury results or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire shall be fined or imprisoned up to ten years or both, and if death results, or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

    he HAS been charged.
    really, what else do you WANT?


    Wednesday, October 14, 2009 11:42 AM
    By Randy Ludlow
    The Columbus Dispatch

    A former contractor for the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police has been charged with rummaging through state computers to retrieve confidential information about "Joe the Plumber."
    Brett A. Gerke, 52, of 2329 Woodcreek Place on the Far North Side, is charged with attempted unauthorized use of property.
    Gerke entered a diversion program on Oct. 2, which typically results in the dismissal of a criminal charge. He has not entered a plea. The charge is a first-degree misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail.
    The State Highway Patrol says that Gerke used a law-enforcement computer network on Oct. 16, 2008 to access personal information about Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher.
