Missouri Senate Passes Bill to Prohibit Warrantless Stingray Spying

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (April 6, 2017) - Today, the Missouri Senate passed a bill that would ban the use of "stingrays" to track the location of phones and sweep up electronic communications without a warrant in most situations. The proposed law would not only protect privacy in the Show Me State, but would also hinder one aspect of the federal surveillance state.

There are already a shitload of federal laws prohibiting the monitoring, eavesdropping or interception of cell phone and wireless data. The problem isn't the need for more laws. The problem is the need to put someone in prison for violating them.

It cost a lot of money for the pigs to eaves drop on the public. The money is busting teenagers smoking weed where you don't need a lot of technology to perform those task. What's important is the hardware has been paid for and the contractors got rich and the cops got paid to play with some new gadgets.
