The Federal Bureau of Investigation is taking the position that court warrants are not required when deploying cell-site simulators in public places. Nicknamed “stingrays,” the devices are decoy cell towers that capture locations and identities of mobile phone users and can intercept calls and texts. You can be standing at a street corner sending a text and your government thinks they have the right to read it too! We don’t believe the FBI can just unilaterally decide to violate the Constitution. And just look at the lengths they will go to keep knowledge about these devices secret    

In yet another story about how our elected officials are allowing the government to violate our privacy rights, look at how even our Smartphones are programmed to spy on us. This article is loaded with links. As one example, the NSA has inserted its code into Android’s operating system … bugging three-quarters of the world’s smartphones. Google – or the NSA – can remotely turn on your phone’s camera and recorder at any time. This is another huge 4th Amendment violation that we must put up a stink until they stop.

To tell your elected officials to sponsor a Bill that would make these “Stingers” and similar technology illegal to use because they violate our 1st and 4th Amendments or you will vote against them at their next election and you’ll spread the word online that they approve of this policy of spying on We The People take action More We The People pressure changing policy as Washington State Passes a Law Requiring Warrants for Stingray Use. Washington state didn’t care if the F.B.I. (who cannot create, sponsor or write laws) said warrants were not necessary – this state said, “Oh yes they are!”
