Sheriff must air phone-tracking details

Quote:
A state judge Tuesday ordered the Erie County Sheriff’s Office to release information about its acquisition and use of cellphone-tracking devices to monitor users and their locations.

State Supreme Court Justice Patrick H. NeMoyer issued the order in response to a legal action filed by the New York Civil Liberties Union after the Sheriff’s Office denied its request under the Freedom of Information Law for records on the devices known as Stingrays.

NYCLU staff attorney Mariko Hirose, lead counsel on the case, welcomed the ruling. “The court today has confirmed that law enforcement cannot hide behind a shroud of secrecy while it is invading the privacy of those it has sworn to protect and serve,” she said.

“The public has a right to know how, when and why this technology is being deployed. They deserve to know what safeguards and privacy protections, if any, are in place to govern its use.”

This is LONG overdue.
We need oversight into these government operations. It's disgusting that it's allowed so unsupervised at the federal level.
Even more so that it's filtered into the state level with no real justification.
Thanks from coke

Until I become a "Bad Guy", I really don't think it's such a bad Idea, there are just too many evil peeps out there trying to kill us.

It works as long as you can trust the police, the intelligence agencies and the governments.

Part of the problem with that is when you actually ask the government "How many bad guys have you caught with these enhanced spying powers?", repeatedly the answer comes back to be none.


And that's even before you look at the fact that we're throwing the fourth amendment out the window with this governmental action...
