Sheriff Admits to Cell Phone Spying Technology

Recommended Posts

We've all seen the mass protests and how cops show up ASAP, well they can monitor the number of cell phones in an area, well there's been talk to stash a ton of phones in a car and drive so some nonsense area and have the cops en mass follow it while the protest goes on somewhere else.


I roll with sigs off so I have no idea what you're advertising.

I quite like that idea. Except that they would just see you with a thermal imaging camera on a satellite and know what's up.


Computer's don't make errors. What they do, they do on purpose. By now your name and particulars have been fed into every laptop, desktop, mainframe and supermarket scanner that collectively make up the global information conspiracy, otherwise known as The Beast.

 

You just be careful. Computers have already beaten the Communists at chess. Next thing you know, they'll be beating humans.

Oh and a BIG NO-NO is to transmit a signal on 10Mhz. The feds will come to your door for that. Learned about that in my Communications class ;)

What about 10mHz is a no-no, Google cant tell me what it is


And so GabeN has told us to march forthith unto the Land of Holy welding our swords of mice, shields of keyboards, and helmets of Oculus Rifts where we shall reclaim it-which is rightfully ours-from the PUNY Console Peasants from whom armed only with mere controllers we shall decimate in all forms of battle and we shall dominate even in their most ridiculous tradition and infatuation of CoD. Yes, my brothers- sisters and trans sexuals too- we shall destroy the inferior of races with our might and majesty. And if any Peasants wish to join us they must speak now or forever perish. -Ancient Speech from a Leader of Old, Book of Murratri section 2

10Mhz is the frequency that the United States runs its atomic clock on. Canada has another frequency for their atomic clock.. I forget what it is.. If you have a low frequency radio receiver, listen to it on 10Mhz. It's really cool to hear.

Its basically all digital, but most of the 30 meter band (~10mhz) is actually used for things like LTE-A (cellphones), satellite communication, and I also believe that there is telemetry data allocated on that band as well.

the key word here is "unwarranted" which means they don't need any evidence that you're a criminal in order to use this to spy on you.

 

I would imagine that they are applying the NSA's interpretation of the law. Metadata is fair game and can be collected and looked at freely, it's also fair game to collect all the data (the actual contents of the texts / phone calls). But to actually look at the contents, as in listen to the call, they'd require a warrant. Of course, they can build a case with the metadata which makes obtaining the warrant a trivial task, then review the data they or the mobile carrier has already collected.

 

What's interesting here, is that this is exactly what the NSA does, but in a smaller more localised manner. But it's the same as everything, as soon as a technique is used or a law is passed to 'protect us against terrorists' eventually it'll be used on the general public for mundane crimes.

 

Edit: actually it seems they've been doing this for almost a decade, they are adamant they don't collect any 'call or text data' and the tech is being used 'infrequently'. So I dunno, perhaps in this instance it's not as bad as it sounds tbh.

Or just don't take phones to the protest.

Yes they could use that but as far as the people arranging where the riot squad goes they will use the cell phone count first to send them, once they're there its a different story but I bet they will look for them for a good while before leaving.

Well that's the point and also a safeguard against any retribution by the powers that be, any smart protester isn't taking any such non invasive identification device, hence why the Guy Fawkes mask was being banned

Sweet, so when I lose my phone or someone steals it they can find it right? 

 

You can do that today but what are the chances you will actually go to that place the phone is now? Its not like it will be out in the open, it will most likely be in some bad  side of town in a building/house you wouldn't enter in the middle of the day with half an army with a chance of getting out in one piece.
