State Representative Bob Dixon was in Springfield Tuesday to call for the House of Representatives to hold public hearings on a controversial report issued by the Missouri Information and Analysis Center, or MIAC, in February. KSMU's Jennifer Moore reports.
The report was intended to aid law enforcement officials in identifying potential threats in the United States, but it linked conservative groups to “The Modern Militia Movement.” It also indicated that individuals who support third party candidates—and who display bumper stickers supporting them—may pose a threat.
Speaking the campus of Missouri State University, Dixon said he would like to know what sources contributed to the report, which he believes contained political profiling.
The representative said he wants a committee to study what the process was in compiling and releasing the report, and to propose recommendations on how to avoid political profiling in future reports.
The Missouri Information and Analysis Center was created in 2005 under former Governor Matt Blunt as an agency to gather and analyze information related to homeland security.
