Allie Bohm, advocacy and policy strategist for the ACLU, discusses the NY Times article “Police Are Using Phone Tracking as a Routine Tool;” how local law enforcement makes up their own rules on cell phone surveillance, largely unfettered by judicial oversight; why our outdated telecommunications privacy laws should be modernized; how the Supreme Court ruling on GPS tracking could effect the legality of other kinds of warrantless surveillance; and how the PATRIOT Act has been used almost exclusively in non-terrorism cases.

  1. Wages trade hours for dollars — Should be by mutual agreement

    The upper half of society has all the wealth, so they must needs keep a close watch on the impoverished lower half.

    And so, a simple solution would be to raise the minimum wage until half of the wealth was owned by the laboring-class, the 49% of society with no education but some high school.

  2. and yr Dr. teeth..two way car mirror/radio/sat/cell/skybe…all the way to MAFIA cemetry.

  3. How do you disable the GPS in your cell phone & reenable it when you want to make a call?
