    But for months we've had nutjobs like Michelle Bachmann warning about the Census being used to round people up for internment/re-education camps. Sane people don't believe it, but insane/ignorant people will.

    This is horrible. I hope they catch whoever did this. And the news media needs to be responsible and pick up on this. I hope there is some sort of memorial fund set up for his family.

    I do remember hearing of a Census worker dying in 2000. I think it was in Texas that time.

    It's a federal offense to kill a federal employee, I believe. Whoever did this could easily receive the death penalty or life in prison without parole.

    a computer he was using for work was found inside it, she said. He worked part-time for the Census, usually conducting interviews once or twice a month.
    This guy wasn't working on the 2010 census. He was probably working on the American Community Survey, which took the place of asking all the in-depth demographic questions on the census questionnaire. If I recall correctly, those Census workers call folks at their homes prior to making an in-person visit. This means that whomever he was visiting in that neighborhood knew he was coming.

    Some of the enumerators have to go house to house with federal marshals to get the info. They are that serious about it. This has been going on for at least 20 yrs that I am aware that people really donot want to give that information out so it's not new.

    They didn't for me. She just showed up one night but I gave her the info. Wondering with all I am hearing maybe I shouldn't have.

    I had a census worker come to my house, probably a couple of months ago, and she was letting me know about the census and that someone would again be coming to gather our data. I don't see how anyone can think anything sinister about the census, for goodness sake! They've been doing it for decades. Holy shit, some people are ignorant.

    This combination of ignorance and fear is really dangerous.
    You know - that is so scary its funny - yeah, I see the point about security, you should always check the person's ID, etc.
    But the rest... we (UK Govt) GPS addressses via the first line address data - fucking retards!
    & while they're on it - about being unconstitutional... maybe they should actually find out the truth instead of what their mate told them....
    What is the Census?


    • The census is a count of everyone living in the United States every 10 years.
    • The census is mandated by the U.S. Constitution.
    • The next census is in 2010.
    • Your participation in the census is required by law.
    • It takes less than 10 minutes to complete.
    • Federal law protects the personal information you share during the census.
    • Census data are used to distribute Congressional seats to states, to make decisions about what community services to provide, and to distribute $400 billion in federal funds to local, state and tribal governments each year.

    I know - I've worked with people that use both Us & UK census data & indeed used UK data because it was better/more thorough/validatated/etc...

    I read a book some years back about the moonshine trade in Appalachia and the Ozarks from the 1920's to the 1980's, and there were almost 200 murders of federal agents in these areas over the years. It's a scary, insular and violent place. I wonder if this man stumbled upon something illegal, like a meth lab.

    Some of the Hollows (pronounced Hollers) don't welcome any strangers at all, and have long been anti-government dating back to the 20's.
