An American court is looking at whether the American government’s use of a “Stingray” surveillance technology was legitimate. The lawsuit, the US vs. Rigmaiden, is being closely watched, and EFF leaves the government with some explaining to do.
“Stingray” is an International Mobile Subscriber Identity locator, also known as “IMSI catcher”. It works as a fake mobile phone tower located in a van outside someone’s house, which allows the authorities to route all network traffic to the fake tower. The Electronic Frontier Foundation was against using Stingray because the device could obtain the contents of electronic and wire communications, at the same time necessarily sucking down data on scores of innocent people as well.
Daniel David Rigmaiden was charged with several tax and wire fraud crimes, though the spooks failed to pinpoint his precise location within an apartment building. The FBI received a court order to force Internet service provider Verizon to help the officers pinpoint the physical location of a Wi-Fi card and mobile phone they believed Daniel was using.
Nevertheless, the government did not simply require Verizon to hand down the information – it also used a Stingray device to find Daniel and obtained a lot of other information from various electronic devices in the complex along the way. Daniel Rigmaiden insisted that the Stingray evidence was a warrantless search, which infringed the 4th Amendment. In the meanwhile, the EFF pointed out that the warrant in question only mentioned the ISP, but didn’t allow using Stingray. The consumer watchdog believes that the fact that the government obtained lots of data from other innocent people was a “general warrant”, the precise evil the 4th Amendment was meant to prevent.

|Cool so they will see my xhamster use? LOL|
|Wow!?talk about piracy.|
|How Ironic. He was charged with income tax fraud, when Income tax itself is a complete fraud and every cent of income tax taken from the public in the last century has been taken fraudulently by the privately owned federal Reserve. plenty of Documentaries about that if you're interested. On a side note, America isn't even in Debt as they pretend to be. Just watch some videos about the CAFR reports to prove that.|

|Didn't the U.S. constitution get fed to the shredder?|

|That is seriously disturbing. There is no way that allowing the government to intercept and presumably record communications from hundreds of people to locate one will stand up under the Fourth Amendment. They must have to use some sort of filter so that all communications but the one for which they obtained a warrant is filtered out or some type of similar technology. Then again, under the "Patriot" Act (ironically named, since it eliminates or weakens our Constitutional rights -- the opposite of patriotism), the Government can do quite a bit of broad-based snooping in the name of couter-terrorism.|

|Another embarrassment for the American people. You guys have really been turned into a joke these last few years.|
|I BELIEVE THAT AS A PEOPLE WE ARE BEING TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF IN ORDER TO MAKE THE "LAW" A DICTATOR OVER OUR NATURAL FREEDOM. I WONDER HOWCOME PEOPLE ARE NOT THE DETERMINING FACTOR WHEN "LAWS" ARE BEING CREATED, SHOULDN'T WE CHOOSE !? 'CAUSE AFTER ALL THESE SO CALLED "LAWS" RUIN THE WELFARE OF THE VERY SAME PEOPLE THAT "GOVERNMENTS" CLAIM TO BE LOOKING OUT FOR. TRUE CHOICE HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH THE ILLUSION OF CHOICE, AND EVERYTHING COMES WITH A 000.1font FINE PRINT.|
