Watching the Watchers

Beats trying to actually do something that threatens ... !gasp! ... the civil rights of actual citizens, I guess:

The American Civil Liberties Union will train volunteers to monitor the Minuteman project along the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas and New Mexico, and document any abuses of human rights or violence, said Claudia Guevara, a coordinator for the ACLU's Legal Observers program in El Paso.

Having to choose between those who are unquestionably breaking the law and those who they fear might break the law presents no dilemma for the ACLU. Don't you wish you had such a strong sense of moral superiority. Just imagine how much easier life would be.
