Students are to go to: www.wikipedia.org
Please enter: Patriot Act
The reading is quite voluminous, & although every person should be aware of what it contains, since it effects our rights, I would just expect you to at least scan each section to get an idea of the contents. Scroll down until you reach: CONTROVERSY and read what it describes. There will be 2 questions to answer.
1. Do you believe the U.S. Government should continue to have the Patriot Act in place given there still remain terrorist threats ex. (ISIS)?
2. What is your opinion on “Sneak & Peak” searches? (See under Title II: Surveillance Procedures). Is the U.S. Government justified in gaining access & obtaining documents to reveal your patterns of how you live?
