Stop New, Intrusive FBI Surveillance Powers

This petition had 43,896 supporters

According to The New York Times, the FBI — despite a stunning record of abuses — will soon be giving its roughly 14,000 agents significant new surveillance powers.

The loosened surveillance standards reportedly include giving agents more leeway to search commercial and police databases, to go through household trash, and to use surveillance teams to scrutinize the lives of people the FBI doesn't even suspect of wrongdoing.

If you believe the last thing the FBI needs is more power to invade your life, send a message to Attorney General Eric Holder right now.
