Is the ACLU... Libertarian?Submitted by Colorado Sean on Sun, 03/10/2013 - 13:07
"The Militarization of Policing in America": http://www.aclu.org/militarization
In the past I have heard negative opinions, that they are knee-jerk liberals, radical, etc... I have to say it influenced my opinion about them without knowing much about the organization.
But the ACLU has been speaking out against the growing police state. They recently caught my attention and have written good editorials on the subject. They frequently cite the constitution and constitutional freedom.. as well as liberty.
What is the sentiment here regarding the American Civil Liberties Union? Any insights or knowledge to share?
