DIGITAL DRAGNET: Data sweeps pervasive in law enforcement

 
Dec. 8, 2013




http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/12/08/cellphone-data-spying-nsa-police/3902809/

The National Security Agency isn't the only government entity secretly collecting data from people's cellphones. Local police are increasingly scooping it up, too.

Armed with new technologies, including mobile devices that tap into cellphone data in real time, dozens of local and state police agencies are capturing information about thousands of cellphone users at a time, whether they are targets of an investigation or not, according to public records obtained by USA Today and Gannett newspapers and TV stations.

The records, from more than 125 police agencies in 33 states, reveal:

--About one in four law-enforcement agencies have used a tactic known as a "tower dump," which gives police data about the identity, activity and location of any phone that connects to the targeted cellphone towers over a set span of time, usually an hour or two. A typical dump covers multiple towers, and wireless providers, and can net information from thousands of phones.

--At least 25 police departments own a Stingray, a suitcase-size device that costs as much as $400,000 and acts as a fake cell tower. The system, typically installed in a vehicle so it can be moved into any neighborhood, tricks all nearby phones into connecting to it and feeding data to police. In some states, the devices are available to any local police department via state surveillance units. The federal government funds most of the purchases, via anti-terror grants.

--Thirty-six more police agencies refused to say whether they've used either tactic. Most denied public records requests, arguing that criminals or terrorists could use the information to thwart important crime-fighting and surveillance techniques.

Police maintain that cellphone data can help solve crimes, track fugitives or abducted children or even foil a terror attack.

Organizations such as the American Civil Liberties Union and Electronic Privacy Information Center say the swelling ability by even small-town police departments to easily and quickly obtain large amounts of cellphone data raises questions about the erosion of people's privacy as well as their Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable search and seizure.

Feds: Chicago ex-cops planned to torture millionaire by slicing his penis like a ‘banana’

An ex-Chicago cop is accused of plotting to kidnap, torture and murder a wealthy Chicagoan. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, former Chicago Police officer Steven Mandell and an accomplice planned to torture the rich man and mutilate his genitals, cutting his penis lengthwise “like slicing a banana split.”

Court transcripts made available on Thursday detail an October 25, 2012 conversation between Mandell and his accomplice, Gary Engel, who killed himself shortly after he and Mandell were arrested last year. In the call, the two men plotted the grisly abduction and torture.

Mandell, then 62, confessed to Engel that the idea of torturing someone made him sexually aroused. Federal prosecutors allege that the two men had built a dedicated killing chamber located in the 5300 block of Chicago’s West Devon Avenue. They were discussing how to tie up their victim when Engel detailed his plan to slash open the man’s penis.

“You going to put a little blade there?” Mandell asked Engel.

Engel replied that he would, that flaying open a penis is just like “slicing a banana split. You know what a banana split looks like?”

Mandell made “ooh”-ing sounds as Engel further described the ways they would defile the rich man’s body before finally killing him. Mandell urged Engel to be mindful of th

Privacy takes a beating in the FBI's kangaroo court
Feds ran roughshod over Lavabit, forcing it to shut down and proving the government is fighting to win -- and fighting dirty -- in the privacy wars

InfoWorld | May 22, 2014

The cyber-privacy wars continue, but it still looks like we're losing and losing huge. Two steps forward followed by sucker punches to the face, gut, and crotch resulting in 15 steps back. I think that's about right, and I've really run out of contemptuous snarky comments here other than ... wow.

In Privacy Wars Episode 3,457: A New Hope, Silent Circle just raised $30 million in VC funding. These are the guys working on building NSA-frustrating and publicly available encryption as well as the Blackphone Batman keeps in his utility belt, so investors think they're a pretty good bet since people are a little tired of every hack-nerd and cyber-spy setting up shop in their shorts. The bucks come from Cain Capital and Ross Perot Jr., who must be getting a late start ticking off his dad.

Silent Circle is also one of two founding members of the dramatically named Dark Mail Technical Alliance. The other one is Lavabit, a fairly young email provider that was naively founded on the principal that we deserve our digital privacy. It foolishly sought to enforce this maxim by offering features like asymmetric encryption. Tellingly, its most famous customer was Edward Snowden.

Those are the two not-so-recent steps forward for us. Now the bad news.

In Privacy Wars episode 3,458: The Empire Strikes Back, it turns out that the Dark Mail Technical Alliance is actually a solo operation because the federales forced Lavabit to shut down last August.

The story starts with some FBI agents showing up at Lavabit's offices one fine morning (right after it was suggested that Snowden had been a customer -- what an amazing coincidence) without even the basic decency of bringing coffee and donuts. They demanded that the company allow it to install surveillance equipment on its network. Hey, why not? The FBI then also presented a court order demanding that Lavabit fork over its private encryption keys so it could access minor information like all customer passwords. Lavabit dug its heels in at that point and told the Feebs it wasn't going to comply until it got legal advice.

But the FBI apparently anticipated that move because it immediately fired off a machine-gun blast of legal documents, including an eventual summons to appear in a Virginia court in 48 hours even though Lavabit operations were located in Texas. Lavabit's founder, Ladar Levison, claims he spent the first two weeks trying to find an attorney who understood both privacy and technology well enough to represent him (and we all know how easy it is to find a tech-savvy lawyer) only to find that when he got to Virginia, the court denied him the right to counsel since the government was only after his property not his personal freedom. He wound up facing the judge alone. Wow.

54% of Americans Want Netanyahu to Be Investigated for Nuclear Weapons Tech Smuggling Before his US Visit, an IRemp Poll


Al-Jazeerah, CCUN, February 9 2015


Poll: Netanyahu should be investigated for nuclear weapons tech smuggling before US visit


A majority of Americans believe Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should be investigated by the FBI for nuclear weapons technology smuggling before being allowed to enter the United States according to a new poll.


In 2012 the FBI declassified and released files (PDF archive) of its investigation into how 800 nuclear weapons triggers were illegally smuggled from the US to Israel. According to the FBI, the Israeli Ministry of Defense ordered nuclear triggers (krytrons), encrypted radios, ballistic missile propellants and other export-prohibited items through a network of front companies. Smuggling ring operations leader Richard Kelly Smyth alleged that Netanyahu worked at one of the fronts--Heli Trading owned by confessed spy and Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan--and met with him frequently to execute smuggling operations.

The poll was commissioned by the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy (IRmep). When informed of the incident, most Americans (54.9 percent) indicate that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should be investigated by the FBI before an upcoming U.S. visit.
Israel officially designated the smuggling operation "Project Pinto." Smyth was captured, prosecuted and incarcerated in 2002 after years on the run as an international fugitive. The krytrons were believed to be destined for Israel's clandestine nuclear weapons program.
Only 25.8 percent of Americans polled believe Netanyahu should be allowed to freely visit the US while 15.9 percent say said he should neither be investigated nor allowed to enter the US
When questioned by Israeli and Russian media about the smuggling affair, the Israeli Foreign Ministry denied involvement.
Younger respondents (age 18-24 and 25-34) are generally more likely to want Netanyahu investigated (73.6 percent and 62.0 percent) than older Americans. Reponses vary little between income categories. However females (63.4 percent) were more likely than males (50.4 percent) to prefer Netanyahu be criminally investigated before being allowed to enter America.
Netanyahu has recently announced plans to break diplomatic protocol and address the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and Congress in March, 2015 without coordinating his state visit with the White House.
The IRmep poll, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percent, was fielded January 26-28, 2015 by Google Consumer Surveys and received 1,507 responses. The poll question, response choices and statistically significant results may be viewed online and cross-tabulated at:

No charges for woman who threw bacon into police station
FRAMINGHAM, Mass.


- A judge has dismissed charges against a Massachusetts woman who threw uncooked bacon and sausage inside a police station while saying she was there to "feed the piggies."

Lindsey McNamara, of Ashland, was charged with disorderly conduct and malicious destruction of property after the Dec. 26 incident, which was caught on video surveillance.

Police say the 24-year-old McNamara entered the Framingham station with a box of meat and started throwing it and smearing it on the dispatch window.

A judge Wednesday dismissed the destruction charge, saying police had provided little evi

FBI Admits Its Secret Spy Tool Screws Up Bystanders' Cell Service
Mar 4, 2015, 02.15 AM IST


http://www.gizmodo.in/news/FBI-Admits-Its-Secret-Spy-Tool-Screws-Up-Bystanders-Cell-Service/articleshow/46449462.cms



The FBI wants to keep stealthy phone surveillance tools called Stingrays as secret as possible, for obvious reasons (to use them whenever they want with as little oversight as possible, growing tipsy on the intoxicating liquor of unfettered power). And now another reason for secrecy just came out: Using Stingrays can disrupt regular peoples' cell service.

In a recently unsealed court document obtained by the ACLU, an FBI agent admitted that Stingray devices, which pinpoint and collect data from suspects' phones by dragnetting the phones nearby, can interfere with cell service for those innocent bystanders. Wired's Kim Zetter looked at the court document, where Special Agent Michael A. Scimeca admits that Stingray devices can "intermittently disrupt cellular service" for people:

The document was previously sealed and only came to light after the defense attorney for a defendant in the case filed a motion last year to dismiss evidence collected by the stingray. It's the first time the ACLU has seen the FBI acknowledge the stingray's disruptive capabilities and raises a number of questions about the nature of the disruption and whether the Federal Communications Commission knew about it when it certified the equipment.

Zetter talked to Nate Wessler, a staff attorney with the ACLU, about why people should be concerned. "If an emergency or important/urgent call (to a doctor, a loved one, etc.) is blocked or dropped by this technology, that's a serious problem," he told her. Just because Stingrays are designed to recognize and allow through 911 calls doesn't mean they aren't disconnecting other important phone calls.

This sort of admission is exactly why Stingray use needs to be interrogated. Right now, law enforcement are using these surveillance tools without proper oversight, and we don't know the extent to which they're screwing with our service.

It's not like cops and the FBI are only busting out Stingrays in grave cases where the terrorists will win unless we can hack their phones. In Florida, for example, Stingrays have been used for common, low-level crimes like theft and even a 911 hangup. I'm not saying that there is never any value in using Stingrays, or that collateral cell service interruption is never acceptable in the pursuit of criminal justice. But it's disturbing that the FBI and local law enforcement have so much uncontested power to d

Governor's Councilor Michael Albano recalls FBI intimidation

BOSTON — As "Black Mass," the blockbuster film that tells the story of Boston crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger, attracts millions of viewers to theaters, Governor's Councilor Michael Albano recounted the time two of the film's central figures attempted to intimidate him.

In 1983, shortly after Albano was appointed to the state Parole Board, then-FBI agents John Connolly and John Morris dropped by Albano's office to talk about his vote recommending the commutation of the life sentence of Peter Limone, a reputed mobster who had been wrongly convicted for a 1965 Chelsea murder.

"Connolly comes in and starts saying, 'You can't do this, it's not good for you, this guy is going to go out on the streets,' and 'I understand you want to go into politics and have a political future, this will not be good for you,' " Albano said Monday. "That type of commentary, that was typical Connolly -- arrogant, know it all, all of that."

Ultimately, the board voted 5-2 to recommend that Gov. Michael Dukakis commute Limone's sentence to make parole a possibility but Dukakis denied the petition. Albano and the four other Parole Board members who voted in favor of commutation became the targets of a two-year criminal investigation by the State Police, he said. The investigation found no wrongdoing.

In 2001, Limone was released after serving about three decades in prison when the FBI was found to have been withholding exculpatory evidence proving Limone's innocence.
Connolly was convicted in 2008 of second-degree murder for having leaked information to Bulger, leading to the 1982 murder of businessman John Callahan in Florida. Connolly is currently serving a 40-year prison sentence.

Morris, a former supervisor of the organized crime unit at the Boston FBI office, admitted to accepting bribes from and leaking information to Bulger, but was granted immunity in exchange for testifying against the one-time Winter Hill Gang boss.

2.


I have long been indebted to Jane Hamsher, Kevin Gosztola, and Brian Sonenstein at Firedoglake. They helped rally support for me in my deepest time of need, reaching out to people like you who gave very generously to FDL to help Heather and me pay for our mortgage and even to buy gifts for our children. Jane, Kevin, and Brian also generously published my open "Letters from Loretto" and even visited me in prison.

I am now a proud reader and supporter of Shadowproof, Kevin and Brian's next generation platform of investigative journalism. Shadowproof is working to investigate and cover issues that are important to me that don't get nearly enough attention in the mainstream press, such as whistleblowing, prison healthcare, civil liberties, and the justice system.

They are one of very, very few outlets covering prison conditions, solitary confinement, and torture, and they are planning even more and deeper coverage in the near future. We're even in the process of planning of live, online discussion at Shadowproof about my experiences in prison and my upcoming books.

It's not easy to confront the established, corporate-owned mainstream media and to cover complicated and controversial issues that others have chosen to ignore. It takes support, financial support, from people like you and me.

Would you help me to help Shadowproof succeed by making a donation today? It's up to all of us to work together to make it a success. No pledge is too small to make a difference. Thank you!

Sincerely,

John Kiriakou

World's climate about to enter 'uncharted territory' as it passes 1C of warming

Global warming milestone is one of three climate records set to be broken in 2015, says UK Met Office

http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/nov/09/worlds-climate-about-to-enter-uncharted-territory-as-it-passes-1c-of-warming


Monday 9 November 2015 10.02 EST
Last modified on Monday 9 November 2015 10.56 EST



Climate change is set to pass the milestone of 1C of warming since pre-industrial times by the end of 2015, representing “uncharted territory” according to scientists at the UK’s Met Office.

2015 is also set to be the hottest on record, as the temperatures are so far beating past records “by a country mile”, they said. The World Meteorological Organization further announced on Monday that 2016 would be the first year in which the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is over 400ppm on average, due to the continued burning of fossil fuels.

The trio of landmarks comes just three weeks ahead of a crunch UN summit in Paris where world leaders including Barack Obama, Xi Jinping and David Cameron meet in Paris in a bid to reach a new deal on cutting emissions.

The Met Office’s data from January to September 2015 already shows global average temperatures have risen by 1C for the first time compared to pre-industrial times. The rise is due to the “unequivocal” influence of increasing carbon emissions combined with the El Niño climate phenomenon currently under way. The Met Office expects the full-year temperature for 2015 to remain above 1C. It was below 0.9C in 2014, marking a sharp rise in climate terms.

“This is the first time we’re set to reach the 1C marker and it’s clear that it is human influence driving our modern climate into uncharted territory,” said Stephen Belcher, director of the Met Office’s Hadley Centre, said. “We have passed the halfway mark to the 2C target.”

The announcement of symbolic milestones in the run up to the Paris summit will increase pressure on negotiators to deliver a strong deal to avert the catastrophic global warming expected beyond 2C of warming.

“Mother Nature has been kind to the French, but it should not be that way,” said Prof Myles Allen, at the University of Oxford, referring to the impetus the milestones should give to the conference hosted in Paris. “International negotiations on climate change should not be in hoc to what happens ... in the preceding nine months.” In any case, he said: “The last three months of 2015 would have to be really odd to change [projections of unprecedented warming for 2015] as we are beating the records by a country mile.”

Amber Rudd, the UK’s energy and climate change secretary, said: “Climate change is one of the most serious threats we face, not just to the environment, but to our economic prosperity, poverty eradication and global security. That’s why I want an agreement on a global deal in Paris. Pledges to reduce emissions made by countries [are] just the beginning. We need to ensure that as the costs of clean energy fall, countries can be more ambitious with their climate targets.”

Climate change is clear in the Central England Temperature record, which is the longest in the world and stretches back to 1772, said Ed Hawkins, a climate scientist at the University of Reading. “We can see the fingerprint of global warming in our own backyard. Central England has warmed 20% more than the global average [as land warms faster than oceans] and we expect that to continue.”

The impacts of climate change are analysed in other research presented on Monday by the UK’s Avoid project. It found that, compared to unchecked global warming, keeping the temperature rise below 2C would reduce heatwaves by 89%, flooding by 76%, cropland decline by 41% and water stress by 26%.

Prof Joanna Haigh, at Imperial College London and part of the Avoid team, said the last major UN climate summit in Denmark in 2009 failed, making Paris crucial in preventing widespread damage: “Copenhagen was generally considered a complete disaster, so it is very important that countries get together at Paris.”

Belcher said 4C of warming would be much more harmful than simply doubling the impacts expected with 2C. He said the European heatwave of 2003, which led to 70,000 deaths, would be “a rather mild summer” in a 4C world.

The Met Office report also showed that the world’s “carbon budget” – the maximum CO2 that can be emitted over time to keep below 2C – was already two-thirds used up by the end of 2014. But only one-third of the sea-level rise expected from 2C of warming – 60cm by 2100 – has so far occurred, because of the time it takes for large ice sheets to melt.

Prof Andrew Shepherd, at the University of Leeds, said a recent Nasa study indicating that ice mass grew in Antarctica from 2003-2008 was contradicted by 57 other studies and had just a 5-10% chance of being a correct prediction.

9/11 and Other Deep State Crimes Teleconference


** wtc7 pentagon
------------------------------------------------------------


** Draft Agenda for SUNDAY 11/22/15 Teleconference
------------------------------------------------------------


8pm
(ET)/5pm (PT) Teleconference # 1-218-895-6835 Access code: 9112001#


Greetings all,
DID A BIG PLANE HIT THE PENTAGON?


** bigplane
------------------------------------------------------------
Following the reports by Craig McKee on our last two teleconferences on the handling of the Pentagon issue at the Oakland 9/11 Truth Film Festival,
controversy has erupted in several quarters. On one email list, it was proposed to debate the question. This was narrowed to the question of whether a big plane impacted the Pentagon. Unfortunately, as this month's teleconference, owing to the holiday, was moved up to SUNDAY 22 November, few of those interested felt they had sufficient time to prepare. Preliminary to this debate (which we expect to schedule for our next teleconference on Wednesday, December 30), coordinator of 9/11 Truth Outreach, Wayne Coste, offered to make a solo presentation entitled "Why the large plane impact [at the Pentagon] hypothesis cannot be discarded." You can and should acquaint yourself with his pdf summaryhere, (http://houston911truth.us5.list-manage.com/track/click?u=84a2c6cbe080c5515da932a5d&id=6a25295e88&e=91763ac879) whether you plan to be present for his presentation this Sunday, or the formal debate in December, where Wayne will be relying on much of the same evidence as he defends the
affirmative position in answer to the question: "Did a large plane impact the Pentagon?"

Craig McKee will report on how he has been the targeted by three people who run 9/11 Facebook groups, most notably Ken Doc, who is the main administrator of the 9/11 Truth Movement Facebook group. Doc has created an entire page on his web site devoted to claiming that McKee is a "disinfo troll," and that he supports fringe theories like space beams, and hologram planes and that he attacks AE911Truth, all of which is false. The other two (Mike Collins and Sebastien Menard) wrote to Richard Gage several months ago making the exact same accusations almost word for word. Doc has recently implied on his Facebook group's page that McKee is a Holocaust denier.

We hope you'll join us on Sunday night!

Peace,

Ken Freeland, facilitator

Columbus, GA - A large group of anti-war and international solidarity activists passed out hundreds of flyers at the annual School of the Americas (SOA) protest at Fort Benning, Georgia on Nov. 21. The flyer calls to support the peace process in Colombia, freedom for Simon Trinidad and to close the SOA, where Latin American death squads and dictators are trained. The Colombian military trains regularly at the SOA and has the worst human rights record in the hemisphere.

Trinidad, a member of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, is held in the Florence, Colorado supermax prison as a political prisoner of the U.S. government. The FARC say Simon Trinidad is needed to complete the peace negotiations with the Colombian government in Havana, Cuba. Activists are organizing a Thanksgiving week call-in day to President Obama to "Free Simon Trinidad!"

On Nov. 21, Florida members of Students for a Democratic Society, the Tampa Committee to Stop FBI Repression and the Freedom Road Socialist Organization rallied with hundreds of others to close a for-profit detention center holding undocumented immigrants, including many women and children. On Nov. 22, a memorial procession for the tens of thousands of victims of the SOA marches to the gates of Fort Benning.

The call-in day is on Tuesday, Nov. 24, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern time. Organizers are asking people to call President Obama at 1-202-456-1111 and say, "I want President Obama to support peace for Colombia, and to free Simon Trinidad. Simon Trinidad belongs at the peace negotiating table, not in solitary confinement at the Florence Colorado Supermax prison."

Manhattan DA, NYPD toss policy letting cops prosecute activists’ summons cases

 

17 Senate Democrats, including Senator Angus S. King Jr., joined Senate Republicans to advance a bill that would rollback oversight of big banks and eliminate consumer protections.

 

The "Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection" Act is now headed to the floor for a vote. Supporters claim it will help community banks but it will also put us at risk of another financial crisis, allow racial discrimination in mortgage lending to go unchecked, and erode consumer protections. 

 

This bill is a bank lobbyist's dream. It will benefit the Wall Street giants that devastated our economy in 2008 way more than community banks. Help us stop it.
