 CHICAGO -- In the wake of recent revelations of domestic spying by the Pennsylvania Department of Homeland Security, viewers of the popular online show, "The Reality Report", demanded the need for accountability. In his 62nd webcast Gary Franchi, the host, posed the question, "What should the punishment be for director James Powers for spying on Pennsylvania citizens?" Viewers replied and expressed outrage after Franchi disclosed the case against Director James Powers at the onset of the report.

Governor Ed Rendell has stated that he doesn't wish to make the Director a "martyr" and offered no accountability when it was revealed the State's Homeland Security Department paid an Israeli based company $125,000 to spy on Tax Protesters, Gay and Lesbian Groups, and opponents of drilling in the Marcus Shale.

At the end of Reality Report 63 Franchi read the emails of viewers who replied to the question. Mike S. emailed his reply to Franchi's question stating, "[he] should be put on trial, convicted and then put before a firing squad and executed for treason."


When asked about putting a public official before a "firing squad" Franchi replied, "I don't wish death on anyone and a 'firing squad' sounds like 'cruel and unusual punishment.' But if the courts decide his fate in that fashion, however unlikely, then the law has spoken."


Other viewers offered lesser penalties such as jail time in the "prison industrial complex" and a penalty invoked by angry crowds during the revolutionary war era, "Tar and Feathering".

When asked about his viewers comments Franchi responded, "The people are upset, and rightfully so, they want accountability from the Governor who only offers apologies."

Governor Rendell and Director James Powers offices did not return calls. As of this article no trial date has been set for Director James Powers for violating his oath of office and the 4th amendment.
