  • Federal Court: Warrantless Cellphone Tracking Not An Illegal Search

    CBS13 Sacramento ^ | May 5, 2015 3:48 PM | The Associated Press / Curt Anderson
    MIAMI (AP) – Investigators do not need a search warrant to obtain cellphone tower location records in criminal prosecutions, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday in a closely-watched case involving the rules for changing technology. The Atlanta-based 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, overturning a three-judge panel of the same court, concluded that authorities properly got 67 days’ worth of records from MetroPCS for Miami robbery suspect Quartavious Davis using a court order with a lower burden of proof. In its 9-2 decision, the 11th Circuit decided Davis had no expectation of privacy regarding historical records establishing his location near...

    Most people realize that emails and other digital communications they once considered private can now become part of their permanent record. But even as they increasingly use apps that understand what they say, most people don’t realize that the words they speak are not so private anymore, either. Top-secret documents from the archive of former NSA contractor Edward Snowden show the National Security Agency can now automatically recognize the content within phone calls by creating rough transcripts and phonetic representations that can be easily searched and stored. The documents show NSA analysts celebrating the development of what they called “Google...

    Wal-Mart issued a statement Monday to TPM dismissing "rumors" that tunnels were being built by the U.S. military beneath closed stores in an attempt to launch a takeover of Texas. "There’s no truth to the rumors," Wal-Mart spokesperson Lorenzo Lopez told TPM via email. The tunnels are part of a series of conspiracy theories surrounding "Jade Helm 15," a military training operation set to take place later this year in seven Western states. The conspiracy theorists have said the operation may be part of a covert attempt to takeover Texas and other states. In response to the theories, Texas Gov....

    The new Avengers movie is great and manages to include messages about the surveillance state, NSA-like projects, our fear of AI superintelligence, and even a warning for the cybersecurity community. Prior to its May 1st U.S. debut, Avengers: Age of Ultron amassed $201.2 million across 44 countries. During its preview night in the U.S., Ultron made $27.6 million; on its first day, Disney reported the movie made $84.46 million. I highly recommend seeing it for pure enjoyment purposes, although you might get struck with tech lust after seeing Tony Stark's toys. Some folks who have seen the movie say it's...

It's becoming laughable to hear the latest excuses, and they have nothing to do with what brought Baltimore down to its knees!

    Am I hearing Obama correctly? While speaking at My Brother's Keeper, Obama complained about lack of jobs for blacks. He then called for more investment in black communities to help solve this problem. Strangely absent from his remarks was the impact illegal immigration has had on jobs available to the LEGAL citizens of this country, INCLUDING blacks. Did Obama forget that it is largely because of HIS overturning of our immigration laws that blacks can't find jobs??? Why won't the black community speak out against Obama's immigration policies? Do they fear insulting their soul brother in the White House?

What will happen this time around? Will we have six black and six white jurors winding up with no decision,aka,"Hung Jury"?,Hopefully this will take place in the winter, last thing Baltimore needs are riots in the summer.

"I just killed a pig," wrote one tweet, showing a bloodied police officer slumped on the ground. Not only was the photo of an officer in South America, but the account sharing it was not in Baltimore. Another tweet, which appeared to be coming from the Baltimore police, asked, "Why are we even tweeting?" and suggested that the protesters couldn't read. It also referred to them with a racial slur.

    When you talk about wasted talent, people immediately think of an individual wasting his or her talent. It’s always a sad story but an individual story. A person makes bad decisions. Little by little that person is on a road where he will not be able to develop his talents to the fullest. But what about a society where children have their talents wasted for them? Not by a lobotomy or by drugs. No, their talents are squandered by systematic planning and careful effort. The technical name for this is social engineering. A more popular name is “deliberate dumbing down.”...

We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded." Sharpton said, “There must be national policy and national law on policing. We can’t go from state to state, we’ve got to have national law to protect people against these continued questions.” I got to thinking...

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott on Tuesday asked the State Guard to monitor a U.S. military training exercise dubbed "Jade Helm 15" amid Internet-fueled suspicions that the war simulation is really a hostile military takeover. The request comes a day after more than 200 people packed a meeting in rural Bastrop County and questioned a U.S. Army commander about whether the government was planning to confiscate guns or implement martial law. "It is important that Texans know their safety, constitutional rights, private property rights and civil liberties will not be infringed," Abbott wrote. "By monitoring the...

    Automakers are supporting provisions in copyright law that could prohibit home mechanics and car enthusiasts from repairing and modifying their own vehicles. Allowing them to continue to fix their cars has become "legally problematic," according to a written statement from the Auto Alliance, the main lobbying arm of automakers. The dispute arises from a section of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act that no one thought could apply to vehicles when it was signed into law in 1998. But now, in an era where cars are rolling computing platforms, the U.S. Copyright Office is examining whether provisions of the law that...
