    Default We're watching: DEA using NSA data for drug busts, FBI to force spy software on

    So, two more stories regarding the US spying on its citizens today.

    In the first, the DEA is using the data the NSA is collecting in order to bust Americans for drugs. The agents are then taught to cover up--er, "recreate" the investigative trail, hiding exculpatory evidence from defendants and judges.

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/...97409R20130805

    In the second, does your service provider not have the capability to store your phone calls, web browsing, emails, and web interactions, and is therefore unable to provide said info? Never fear. The FBI has software it intends to force on providers so they can collect and hand over the data.

    http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-57...re/?tag=reddit

    But, hey...we're safe, right? At what point do we just install cameras in all houses and cars? They'll tell us, "Don't worry. We won't watch or listen unless we find terrorist activity (or you're using drugs or doing any other activity we don't like)."

    Great. As a man with an intensely vindictive ex-girlfriend that works as an analyst for the FBI, this just confirms what her friends have been telling me for years. It's a wonder she hasnt had me killed yet.

    I have begged for my old name back and the bastards vote against me every time. I am Dick Punch from here on out because I am not posting something like that that could possibly be connected to me in real life. I can see it now, "hey everybody, Dick Punch is here!"


    No thanks. Bastards!
