US Cops been lying to use illegal web spying
Police in Florida have, at the request of the US Marshals Service, been deliberately lying to judges and defendants about using a surveillance tool to track suspects.
Officers using so-called stingrays have been routinely telling judges, in applications for warrants, that they obtained knowledge of a suspect's location from a "confidential source" rather than disclosing that the information was gleaned using a stingray.
Five emails written in April, 2009, were obtained today by the American Civil Liberties Union coppers are shown discussing the deception.
The ACLU wrote a blog about how the emails show that concealing the use of stingrays deprives defendants of their right to challenge unconstitutional surveillance and keeps the public in the dark about invasive monitoring by local police.
"And local and federal law enforcement should certainly not be colluding to hide basic and accurate information about their practices from the public and the courts," the blog said.
