Due Process Be Damned, Welcome to the American Police State

Well, it’s here friends, privacy and security be damned, the FBI will just capture all online interactions because no one will stop them from doing so. If you don’t believe it, read about it here.

Here’s an excerpt to whet your whistle:

The FBI appears to have adopted an invasive Internet surveillance technique that collects far more data on innocent Americans than previously has been disclosed.

Instead of recording only what a particular suspect is doing, agents conducting investigations appear to be assembling the activities of thousands of Internet users at a time into massive databases, according to current and former officials. That database can subsequently be queried for names, e-mail addresses or keywords.
