University City, Missouri stands up against homeland security and gets reprimanded by a U.S. Attorney. A resolution passed by the city council to protect citizens' rights from being violated by city employees, including police, "puts all citizens at risk" and could result in "catastrophic loss of life," according to U.S. Attorney Ray Gruender.

I don't see where anyone, including the federal government , has room to complain. The resolution says that city employees are not permitted to cooperate with violating people's constitutional rights. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

I think that's the problem, benjh - the people complaining seem to have no brains...
