Meanwhile, U.S. cops target bloggers

A Memphis, Tenn. blog critical of the Memphis police department and its director is the target of court action.

"The lawsuit asks AOL to produce all information related to the identity of an e-mail address linked to MPD Enforcer 2.0, a blog popular with police officers that has been extremely critical of police leadership at 201 Poplar.

"'In what could be a landmark case of privacy and the 1st Amendment,' the anonymous bloggers write on the site, 'Godwin has illegally used his position and the City of Memphis as a ram to ruin the Constitution of the United States.

"Some members of the Enforcer 2.0 have contacted their attorneys and we are in the process of filing a lawsuit against Larry and the City of Memphis. What's wrong Larry? The truth hurt?"
