THIN BLUE LINE: Florida trooper arrested a cop, then was stalked & harassed by the Thin Blue Line | Police State USA

Apologists apologize for bad cops by saying they’re just a a bad apple — nevermind that the idiom of bad apple actually means “1 bad ruins them all”, because you barrel apples, and 1 bad apple in the barrel ruins every apple. NEVERMIND THAT.

It looks like we finally have a quantifiable ratio of good cop to bad cop — and it looks that the bad cops are well over a 100:1 ratio of the good cops.

This woman dared to arrest a speeder who gave chase for 6 minutes. He was a cop. She had to eventually move away in fear of her life. Gang stalking. It’s a thing. Thin Blue line at work.

The cop she arrested’s name is FAUSTO LOPEZ, AGE 35. He made excuses, then seemingly hid behind the blue line.

Gee, will I get harassed for posting this, Fausto?

POLICE STATE: FBI agent states all telephone calls recorded [or at least transcribed] and accessible to the US government

Stasi? KGB? Nah, just ‘Murica.

As for the various debates about if there is space to hold it all…. Of course there is, but also: Convert it to text and there’s no more space issues. There’s not a problem with archiving every word said by every person, ever. It’s audio and video that take up a lot of space.

Anyway… after the IRS just admitted it could read our email without a warrant… And after previous whistleblowing … it’s become clear that the people closer to the truth are the Big Brother Conspiracy Theorists, not the Government Apologists.

And yes, the Obama Administration has a direct hand in making things worse, not better.

Daniel H adds:

As a result of this “expanding array of theater airborne and other sensor networks,” as a 2007 Department of Defense report puts it, the Pentagon is attempting to expand its worldwide communications network, known as the Global Information Grid, to handle yottabytes (1024 bytes) of data. (A yottabyte is a septillion bytes—so large that no one has yet coined a term for the next higher magnitude.)

It needs that capacity because, according to a recent report by Cisco, global Internet traffic will quadruple from 2010 to 2015, reaching 966 exabytes per year. (A million exabytes equal a yottabyte.) In terms of scale, Eric Schmidt, Google’s former CEO, once estimated that the total of all human knowledge created from the dawn of man to 2003 totaled 5 exabytes.

This type of facility, if actually scaled up to yottabyte level, could EASILY handle all voice communication on the commercial telephone network. And this isn’t a tinfoil fantasy, it’s being built right now.

POLICE STATE: IRS Can Read Your Email Without Warrant

So yup, it’s pretty official… The government can read any of your email at any time, and admit it.

You have no privacy with your own effects, thanks to the Electronic Communication Protection Act, which actually makes our electronic communications NOT protected from the government.

And thanks to the fact that the 4th Amendment’s intent has been repeatedly eroded away every time any new technology comes along. I mean, to protect phone calls, they had to pass specific laws, because your conversations were going over PUBLIC wires that were IN PUBLIC.

But we don’t bother passing laws like that now.

Most people are more concerned with deciding which right to take away next, rather than trying to gain back the rights we had and keep losing.

Sad state of affairs.

iPHONE: Unauthorized iOS Apps Leak Private Data Less Than Approved Ones

This kinda pokes a hole in the argument that apple’s walled garden provides a better user experience ….

(well that, and me owning an iPhone to know what a pain in the ass it is to have thy will be done on it.)

(not that Android is immune to this, but at least you’re not paying extra to be worse off with Android)
