Would you feel betrayed by your government, if you knew that they had monitored homosexuals for over a decade?

Who ever knew Canadians were homophobes? And yes, I guess I would.
14 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 5/29/07 - 7:30:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would, assuming I was part of the people being monitored.
14 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 5/29/07 - 7:36:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
I probably would because it would be an invasion of privacy in a way.

I would feel betrayed, but not too surprised, as an American, if our government spied on the homosexual community. After all, we are going to destroy the sanctity of marriage and bring down the entire goverment with our need for rights, right? *sigh* This story disappoints me.

Horrified, more like.
14 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 6/6/07 - 9:41:47 AM EST (GMT-5)
Ya I would feel really betrayed and really mad.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 7/4/07 - 12:47:23 AM EST (GMT-5)
What group haven’t the police monitored for any criminal activity?
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 7/4/07 - 1:29:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'd be extremely pissed off.
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 7/24/07 - 7:48:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
LOL. I'm not gay.
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 7/24/07 - 9:11:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
Maybe the government thought they had a good reason.
14 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 12/2/07 - 12:43:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
no, i'd be slightly offended that they thought i was gay, but i'm not gay so i wouldn't really feel betrayed

I don't see how someone would have to be gay to be put off by this. Sure, this time it was the homosexual community, but it sets the scene for a possibly disturbing trend.

This time it was the homosexuals, next time it could be any group of people. You play video games? Potential target for surveillance. You like horror movies? You're next on the watch list.

It's disgusting that the police would even consider something like that, as if saying being homosexual gives someone a higher chance of being a criminal.
