Report Alleges Police Use Secret Evidence Collected By Feds To Make Arrests

"Branches of America's federal law enforcement and intelligence services may be secretly helping state and local police arrest suspects every day in ways that raise fundamental questions about defendants' civil and due process rights, according to a recent Human Rights Watch report."

"The report makes the case that federal law enforcers, police and local prosecutors are concealing the origins of evidence and intelligence in scores of criminal cases, especially drug arrests. The intelligence may include National Security Agency mass surveillance programs, wiretaps, computer and phone surveillance, and physical surveillance."

Rather cold, unsettled pattern for the next week to start out February. Not exceptionally cold or snowy, but certainly on the cool side of things on Friday into Saturday, especially when you factor in the wind chill. Some sunny days, but not a lot. When the sun comes out, it will be cold. I guess the big upside is the days now are quickly getting longer, as we head into February.

Map: Onteora Lake Trails

Map: Onteora Lake Trails

Located at one of the most popular gateways to the Catskill Park, the 3,000-acre Bluestone Wild Forest, just 3 miles west of historic Kingston in Ulster County has something for everyone. Developed access is provided to Onteora Lake off State Route 28, one of the few publicly accessible lakes in the Catskills. Its lake, ponds, trails, old quarries, hemlock and oak forests on gently rolling hills - and an occasional cliff- are ideal for hiking, mountain biking, fishing, hunting and cross-country skiing. Bluestone WF is in the Towns of Hurley, Woodstock, Ulster and Kingston. This wild forest consists of numerous smaller parcels scattered throughout the region and a loosely connected mosaic of parcels making up the largest piece between Zena Road (Route 39) and Route 209, which is described below.
