The Utah Identity Theft Task Force recommends making identity fraud a felony crime and making three or more convictions a racketeering offense. Cases of identity fraud in Utah soared to 527 cases in 2002 from just from 32 six years earlier, the task force told the Utah Technology Commission last week. Identity fraud commonly starts with stolen Social Security cards, which can be used to obtain credit cards and open bank accounts. Thieves assume other people's identities and make purchases and apply for credit in their names. Assistant Utah attorney general Richard lb the stage for a bodacious night on the Town.

Hemp says it should be a crime for anyone to possess another's identification. He said many drivers pulled over by police turn out to have fraudulent along with a legitimate ID, but can't be prosecuted for that unless they use the fraudulent IDs to commit a crime. Another task force proposal would make clear that any law enforcement agency that starts an identity theft investigation would follow it, even if it leads outside its jurisdiction. Police often pass off cases of identity theft that do no originate or create victims in their jurisdiction because the investigations can be expensive and catch only misdemeanor offenders, said Lt. Terry Powell of the Utah Cybercrimes Task Force. "If you lose $300, it's going to cost Salt Lake Police Department much more to bring that to trial," Powell said. iuujijjviuiij niiiiiiiiyL MONDAY, AUGUST 28 2003 mm 7 I i II ir I-'-: iNntinn Bush Pledges Not to Let Up in Terror War (AP) President Bush pledged Tuesday that the United States will not stop its war on terrorism, even as U.S. casualties mount and political criticism spreads. "No nation can be neutral in the struggle between civilization and chaos," Bush told thousands of cheering veterans at the 85th annual American Legion convention here. "Every nation that stands on the side of freedom and the value of human life must condemn terror and act against the few who destroy the hopes of the many." "The enemies of freedom are not idle and neither are we," he told about 600 people at the$2,0()0-per-ticket event at the St. Paul RiverCentre. 'This country will not rest, we will not tire and we will not stop until this danger to civilization is removed." The event put another $1.2 million in the bank for Bush's re-election effort next year, a campaign W7 spokesman said. And it bought those who attended edibles better suited for the ongoing Minnesota State Fair corn-on-a-stick, chicken fingers, cheesecake-on-a-stick, lemonade, cotton candy and fried pickles. Bush has raised at least $56 million for his reelection. The president, on a daylong outing from his ranch in Texas, spoke to the 85th annual convention in between two political fund-raisers. About 75 people protested outside as Bush's motorcade arrived at the speech site in St. Paul. One sign said, "Admit failure. Beg the U.N. for help." Another said "Search for economic recovery," in a reference to the unsuccessful hunt for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Bush's appearance before the veterans comes as the number of troops who have died in postwar Iraq reached 140 surpassing the number killed during major combat. A total of 278 soldiers have died since the war began March 20. Bush declared an end to major combat May 1. Cs dd gD World U.S. Launches Raids to Hunt Iraq Bandits (AP) Hundreds of U.S. forces launched a series of raids Tuesday to hunt down bandits, gangsters and Saddam Hussein loyalists, capturing at least 24. Meanwhile, the number of American troops killed in postwar Iraq surpassed the toll of those killed in major combat, reaching 140 with the deaths of a soldier in a roadside bombing and another in a traffic accident. When President Bush declared an end to major combat on May 1 , the U.S. death toll stood at 138. Since then, 140 more soldiers have died, counting both deaths announced Tuesday. The total number of U.S. soldiers killed since the Iraq war began on March 20 is 278. One of the soldiers killed Tuesday was riding in a support convoy hit VOLUME 32 ISSUE 37 the by a bomb in the town of Hamariyah, 16 miles northwest of Baghdad, the military announced. Two other soldiers were wounded in that attack. The other U.S. fatality was a soldier who was struck by an Iraqi motorist while changing a flat in a convoy from Tikrit to a forward base, the military said. In another incident, a third soldier was taken to a military hospital with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound. The two dozen suspected Iraqi criminals were swept up near Baqouba, 42 miles north of Baghdad, in "Operation Ivy Needle," a campaign launched by the 4th Infantry Division. Hundreds of troops, backed by helicopters, tanks and Bradley fighting vehicles chased a convicted murderer and gangster named Lateef Hamed al-Kubaishat known as Lateef by U.S. forces, said Col. David Hogg, commander of the 4th Infantry Division's 2nd Brigade.
