Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta TtW UTHMIDGE HIRAID Wednesday, July 1973 Watergate hasn't cooled protection of rights SAM EKVIN WASHINGTON (AP) The United States Senate may con- sider going beyond new Nixon administration crubs on no- knock narcotics raids by out- them completely. The drug enforcement admin- istration has warned its agents to burst into private homes only sparingly and with proper authorization and full re- gard for individual rights. Despite the new rules issued Monday, some senators ques- tioned whether anything short of repealing the no-knock law can guarantee what the con- stitution describes'as "the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreason- able searches and seizures." Senator Charles Percy Rep. 111.- a key critic of recent no- knock raids, is considering in- teoducing legislation repealing the no-knock authority granted by a 1968 law, an aide said. The aide said there appears to be growing Senate support for the view that "the mere ex- istence" of legal authority for n o-knock raids encourages abuse. The constitutional rights sub- committee, headed by Senator Sam Ervin Dem. N.C., is re- viewing the possibility of repeal as well as legislation to allow victims of mistaken raids to sue the government for damages. Under present law, they can sue only the agents involved. The drug enforcement admin- istration's new policy was ac- companied by a grim warning to agents from John Bartels, acting head'of the agency. "Every agent will know what is expected of him and what the consequences of any deviation will be I can make it pat. ently clear that the misuse of that badge, the misuse of that gun will be dealt with as sternly as possible as quickly as pos- sible." In Collinsville, HI., last April narcotics agents broke into two homes, both wrong addresses. Both families have filed dam- age suits. In other cases, the agents have raided the address they were given but their informants apparently were mistaken .and no drugs were found. By AL COLLETTI Canadian Press Staff Writer Reactions ranging from shock t o good-humored criticism greeted the disclosure Monday that President Nixon "bugged" his White House office conver- sations and phone calls. A spokesman for George Meany quoted the AFL-CIO president as saying: "God bless the blunderers of Watergate. If they hadn't been so clumsy, America would never have known this was go- ing on." Meany 'has been to the Whtte House several times for talks with the president. The spokesman said Meany "found it almost beyond belief' that Nixon was taping his talks for posterity. Senator George McGovern of South Dakota, who lost the 1972 presidential ehction to Nixon, called the bugging "an invasion of privacy." But McGovern said he had never visited Nixon at the White House or phoned him. Senator Robert Dole of Kan- sas, former chairman of the Re- public national committee, said in jest he was glad he "always nodded" instead of saying any- thing when talking with Nixon. The bugging bombshell was dropped by Alexander But- terfield, a former White House aide, who told the Senate Wa- tergate committee that the White House had listening de- vices in operation that would have recorded conversations with John Dean, fired White House lawyer.
