Michael German: "A fusion center is any two agencies who decide to get together and share intelligence information whether those agencies are federal, state or local, whether they're law enforcement or non law enforcement can call themselves a fusion center. They can also involve private parties and private companies can be involved in the fusion centers. There are no regulations governing their activities. "
Jess Sundin: "They went through everything. They took books and CDs, computers, cell phones. They were very interested in anything with names and phone numbers. They took address books. They took sign-up lists for the activism I do. They were very interested in anything political so they took fliers from events like this one tonight or information on Palestine or Columbia which were places of interest in their investigation. They looked through my daughter's belongings. She is six."
