Fla sheriff violates church-state AND mixes civil-criminal law – and Google complies

How, how, how did Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office Detective Robert Hinson get the idea of investigating, as in legally investigating, a blogger complaining about his own church, and doing so without making any threat or anything else.

Parishioner Thomas A. Rich of Jacksonville’s First Baptist Church criticized Rev. John Blount and the amount of financial favor he was getting from a church. Blount was worried about his “vitriol.” He made a couple of minor criminal complaints, which were never even close to being linked to Rich.

But, Hinson served a subpoena to Google, anyway, and…

Google unmasked Rich.

That’s Google, the Barack Obama of blogging privacy.
