So what is the correct answer? It is the Federal Bureau of Investigation, AKA the FBI. Dont believe me? Well, just read Trevor Aaronsons expose entitled The Informants published in the September/October 2011 issue of Mother Jones. Aaronson looked at over 500 terrorism-related cases taken up by the FBI and found that over half of them involved ...

The police found about 10 grams of marijuana, or about a third of an ounce, when they searched Penelope Harriss apartment in the Bronx last year.

The police had reported her arrest to the states child welfare hot line, and city caseworkers quickly arrived and took the children away. Her son, then 10, spent more than a week in foster care. Her niece, who was 8 and living with her as a foster child, was placed in another home and not returned by the foster care ...

Only KIRO Team 7 Investigative Reporter Chris Halsne holds a key document that really lays bare the citys intent. The document was quietly filed in King County Superior Court last week.

COMMENTARY | According to The New York Times, the FBI just raided a data center in Virginia and seized many of its servers, causing websites owned by "tens of clients" to go offline -- including those belonging to people who hadn't broken a law, and were not suspected of any crime. It may seem silly to get upset about the police taking down websites you don't use. A certain quote may come to mind, though, as we look at other ways that the police in America abuse their power.

Post Date: 2011-06-24 13:11:02 by Brian S
After the recent Vancouver riots, it became clear that the world is surveiling itself at an unprecedented scale. Angry citizens gave police one million photos and 1,000 hours of video footage to help them track down the rioters. If we aren't living in a surveillance state run by the government, we're certainly conducting a huge surveillance experiment on each other. Which is what makes two new apps, CopRecorder and OpenWatch, and their Web component, OpenWatch.net, so interesting. They are the brainchildren of Rich Jones, a 23-year-old Boston University graduate who describes himself as "pretty much a hacker to the core." Flush with cash and time from a few successful ...
