It turned out that police in Florida was deliberately concealing using of the surveillance tools to track suspects from both judges and defendants. Apparently, at the request of the US Marshals Service, the police using “stingrays”, when applying for warrants, have been telling judges that they knew about the suspect’s location from some “confidential source”. In other words, they lied about the fact that the information was gleaned using a stingray.
Emails dated April, 2009, were recently obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), revealing coppers discussing the deception. The Union pointed out that the emails disclosed the fact that concealing the use of stingrays deprived defendants of their right to challenge illegal surveillance and people remained unaware about invasive monitoring by the police.
ACLU said that both local and federal law enforcement shouldn’t be hiding basic and accurate information about their practices from the defendants and the courts – in other words, they shouldn’t lie.
“Stingrays”, or IMSI catchers, work by simulating a mobile phone tower and tricking any nearby mobile devices into connecting with them, thus detecting their location. When devices, including smartphones and tablets, connect to the IMSI catcher, it can see and record their unique ID numbers and traffic information, along with data identifying the device’s location. As you can understand, the police can move the stingray around and thus triangulate the location of a device (and a person who carries it) with greater precision than when using information from a fixed tower location.
The authorities of the United States have long asserted that they don’t need a warrant to use such devices because they don’t record phone calls or text messages. However, the American Civil Liberties Union believes that the use of such devices should require a warrant. However, the police simply don’t obtain a warrant, but instead conceal using stingrays from judges and people they accuse of illegal activities. In other words, the authorities don’t tell the public about what technology they employ. Moreover – it turned out that police in Florida may be going even further to hide their use of IMSI catchers when seeking the warrants to search facilities where a suspect is located. They simply tell the courts that they obtain the information from other sources while it is not true.

|Justice is blind and the law is an Ass...|
|lots of ppl behind bars should get there cases looked into then|
|As with all professions the police and law enforcement are no different and when caught with their pants down will close ranks and obfusticate making proving any wrongdoing by them seem to be sanctioned or simply denying that such methods were used despite their ability to use them.|
In the USA it seems to matter not whether guilty or not as is proven by Guantanamo Bay detention camp so by attempting to bring disrepute to the police you have to be very brave to start with lest you find yourself on a flight to Cuba for an indefinite stay without trial sanctioned by a supposed democracy in which no one has any real rights other than those they are allowed and that is only as long as they follow the party plan like good little sheep.
With over 1 in 10 Americans currently in jail and mostly too poor to fight a class action against the government it very seldom works to just look into a case without the backing and support to fight the case and in most cases without the introduction of new testimony or evidence there can be no retrial and so some may die in prison before being vindicated,many wait for year before justice if in fact they get any at all due to cover ups http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/09/15/40-years-for-justice-did-the-fbi-cover-for-the-birmingham-bombers.html and this occurs not just in the USA but in the UK as well //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birmingham_Six sometimes the prisoners get released after they have spent most of their lives incarcerated by, very rarely do they get real justice against those who incarcerated them.

|Yes, the police is crooked..all of them they do dirt in some type of way and they are criminals their selves. A guy at work told me about his trip to Australia; he states that the police will pull you over for nothing then bribe you out of money instead of giving out a ticket or take you to jail. Don't know if it's true but hey, that sounds just about right, a cops doing.|

|This is no longer The Andy Griffith Show police department. Criminals these days are violent and ruthless. You cannot send a ruler wielding nun to apprehend these types of criminals. You have to fight fire with fire. The majority of police departments have long abandoned the "To Protect and Serve" motto and have replaced it with "To Fear and Obey". Can you really blame them? The simplest way our governments have found to combat violent and ruthless criminals is to simply be an even more violent and ruthless entity.|
|Nevanon....someone has to follow the rules. The cops are just criminals with badges. For instance...I have a black friend. we constantly get pulled over bc the police automatically assume that if a black guy and a white guy are in the car together then they MUST be doing some kind of dope deal! So while I can understand that they need to be more forceful when dealing with criminals, I do not believe that that gives them the right to just wander around harassing every person that they assume is doing something wrong! once they have actually identified a real criminal threat by legal means then and only then do they have the right to get "more violent and ruthless" If you start allowing them to go down the road that you are suggesting.....where does it end???|
|wow, how bout look for the idiot that allows their phone to attach through a free wifi portal, free internet anyone, how bout this, I just have to check my facebook or other chat software that pings you. How is the enduser agreement the fault of the police using peoples addictions? Shut your phone off because in most cases people use it as a watch or pretend to have friends. Might be my mistress? Now why would you openly allow your device to contact an unknown source. Now if they pretend to be the provider that is registered then they are impersonating an entity, he lets pretend to be a judge, a cop, or another person, maybe an officail? Basic law, can't break the law to serve the law, remember to hide your identity or pretend to be someone else is always on the list and they can be charged. Just remember quota and tickets pay their wage mostly when there is too many of them, 6 months learning paperwork and the rest is on the job as you can pretty much have the job if you or your family don't have criminal records. How many people download off this site?|
|@5 Crime is down because private gun ownership is up and police(and lightning) actually kill more people than terrorists which were the illegal justification for this treasonous cold war(spying) on citizens. So the idea that this is in any way justified (or legal)is bogus. It's blatant, cut-and-dry treason.|
They aren't spying on people because they're more dangerous- we've always had the same danger but it used to be these guys weren't paranoid cowards that hide behind flak jackets and in mine resistant military tanks while they throw a flash-bang grenade into the home of completely non-violent citizens like they're convicted felons rather than PRESUMED INNOCENT.
They are spying on people for the same reason the Nazi's gathered up all the phone records- to map and track down groups of people that are 'undesirable'(not criminals) as the IRS and DEA has done, selectively enforcing and fabricating evidence to target specific citizens.
If such criminals aren't held accountable, all citizens will be subject to political, religious, social, racial etc. oppression. The thing about that is that everyone is in some group and eventually like thieves rampaging from shop to shop, the tyrannical treason loving traitors that spy on citizens will hit every group until we stop them or they are all that's left besides the drones.
|4 REAL??..nah,nah!not the good ole American Po'Lice??..goodness gracious!oh,btw;wat ev happenD 2 the security guard who discoverD|
