The Pennsylvania Department of Homeland Security paid $125,000 to the Philadelphia-based Institute of Terrorism Research to spy on peaceful protesters, including those protesting Marcellus Shale drilling. They also flagged gay and lesbian pride events, a forestry industry conference and a screening of the documentary "Gasland" as events likely to be attended by activists. Harrisburg should be on their list too. The real threat is coming from a state government who is in the pocket of the gas drilling companies.
