Executives with the American Civil Liberties Union in St. Louis say the FBI has crossed the line in its investigations of Muslims, anarchists and peace activists. The ACLU accuses the FBI of unwarranted investigations of certain groups for religious or political reasons. An ACLU spokesman calls it “eerily reminiscent of the days of J. Edgar Hoover.” The St. Louis branch has filed requests under the Freedom of Information Act, seeking any investigative files the FBI might have on certain groups. A spokesman for the FBI denies the accusations, stating the Bureau doesn’t have the resources nor the time to monitor activities of people just for the sake of monitoring their activities.
