I remember my sponsored tour of Communist East Germany just after the Berlin Wall came down... Our tour guide pointed to cameras and human observers on the street corners...whos job it was, was to keep a close eye on us.... the tour guide said "this is what it is like to live in a Communist country...."
Now...we have the very same level of surveillance, in ways nobody could have ever conceived back then...

Who are the bad guys now ????

stingrays eat mollusks, clams, shrimps, snails and other species of fish, so shapeshift you apes?

[quote name='Anonymous user' time='29.03.2013 15:56']The only way to never be convicted of a crime is simply not to do it.Every act has its consequences.[/quote ]

Now this is the most ignorant comment I've seen in a long time.
How often do we read nowadays about someone released from prison after XX years because DNA or some other incontrovertible proof has proved their innocence after being tried, convicted, and sentenced for a crime they did not commit?

The person who posted that is a blithering idiot.

Using a SilentPocket™ allows you to take control of your own privacy when it comes to GPS tracking

I can't wait until they come to install the cameras in my bathroom!

Current US domestic aerial drones can already receive data from Stingray in case you were wondering.

Privacy is yet another liberty sacrificed for the "greater good".

"cellphone use does not come with a reasonable expectation of privacy." Warning label required.

in hacking this is called a man in the middle attack. I love how it's legal when govs do it.

All this surveillence to protect us from what? Bogeymen in the shadows who hate us for our freedoms? I despise plenty of people, but have no interest in getting off my couch to attack them. People engage in conflict when there's something to gain, no one has ever articulated what the gain of "terrorism" ; is supposed to be. Terrorism gains no resources, gains no lebensraum, and neutralizes no threat. This is one big charade to move money around and control the worker bees.

Unless you have encryption on any type of phone call there is a possibility that it can be recorded but illegally unless there is a warrant based on probable cause.

"Cellphone use does not come with reasonable expectation of privacy." False. Millions of very-personal conversations take place on cellphones every day. Hardly anyone is okay with someone snooping into their SMS-text history when they are not looking.
