State lawmakers in Florida are under fire from across the political spectrum after approving a controversial $1 million “hotline” and “violence-prevention unit” for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office aimed at encouraging citizens to report neighbors, friends, and family members to authorities. A national outcry ensued after a quote from Sheriff Ric Bradshaw in a news article suggested a resident who “hates the government” and expresses violent sentiments should be reported under the new program.
The scheme, which was approved by Florida lawmakers as part of the state government’s massive new budget, has sparked furious controversy. Critics are demanding that it be vetoed by GOP Gov. Rick Scott.
“The Boston bombing provided the opportunity for the government to turn what should have been a police investigation into a military-style occupation of an American city.

Only after the curfew in Watertown, Massachusetts, was lifted and alert resident David Hanberry went outside his home to get a smoke, according to news reports, did the case of the Boston Marathon bombing manhunt for suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev crack open. That was when Hanberry saw blood on the tarp of his dry-docked boat and called the police.
