O'Malley Asked to Reverse Police on Spy File Access

The ACLU of Maryland today asked Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) to reverse a decision by the state police not to allow 53 nonviolent political activists wrongly classified as terrorists to get copies of their files and to review them with their attorneys.

The Washington Post's Lisa Rein reported on the decision today.

In a letter to O'Malley today, ACLU staff attorney David Rocah wrote, "We urge you to immediately intervene with the MSP [Maryland State Police] and direct that they allow persons who wish to be accompanied by counsel to have that opportunity when they view their records, and to direct that the MSP provide copies of all records to those persons who desire them."

You can find the complete letter here on the ACLU website.

Rein reports that MSP spokesman Greg Shipley declined to specify why the subjects would NOT be allowed to copy their files. Outrageous!
The MSP position is: We screwed up once, trust us not to screw up twice.
