Police Abuse of Cell Phone Tracking

The below was placed as a comment to [this opednews.com article]. Go to article source to click on map to learn about your state's abuse of cell phone tracking.

I was stalked for well over 2 years by a Connecticut State Police Informant who I broke up with when I found out what she was about. Went into Massachusetts, rented cars, and didn't talk about where I was going over the phone or in email. Nevertheless, she seemed to show up wherever I had a date or was out socializing. Connecticut State Police Officers would recite word for word my emails and phone conversations. It is scary when a police force can enforce a "no dating" policy on a citizen who refuses intimate contact with a member of the goon squad.

Divorced fathers meeting at a Connecticut law library to research laws to deal with judicial corruption and misconduct were also cyber stalked and probably tracked with cell phones. If you make a police misconduct complaint in Connecticut, it is to the next higher officer. A good way to get arrested and railroaded to prison is to complain about a judge and/or police officer. The system is out to protect itself from us, not to protect and serve. Those who want value for our tax dollar and ask for it are in danger. We need to keep an eye on them, much more than they need to keep an eye on us.

ACLU's New Project to Uncover Details on Law Enforcement Use of Location Tracking


By Kevin Gosztola (about the author)

The ACLU has launched a massive effort with more than thirty of its state affiliates to uncover just how law enforcement agencies, large and small, are using cell phone location data to track Americans. The national organization and its affiliates submitted 379 requests through state Freedom of Information (FOI) laws and hope to unearth documentary evidence to show just how law enforcement is using new technology to invade Americans' privacy.

"We want to get a better handle on the scope of location tracking in this country, how often it happens, where it's happening, whether or not the government gets a warrant based on probable cause," says Catherine Crump, a staff attoreney for the ACLU's Speech, Privacy and Technology Project. She believes this effort will demonstrate law enforcement is using technology tracking more and more often for cases.

Through the FOI requests, the ACLU seeks to uncover information on: "whether law enforcement agents demonstrate probable cause and obtain a warrant to access cell phone location data; statistics on how frequently law enforcement agencies obtain cell phone location data and how much money law enforcement agencies spend tracking cell phones and other policies and procedures used for acquiring location data."

The ACLU takes a clear stance on location tracking, according to Crump. They "think location tracking is deeply invasive of people's privacy rights and the government should only be allowed to do it when they have a warrant based on probable cause." But, it is clear "that's not what's happening. We think that violates the Constitution."

"The American public should know the extent to which people are getting tracked without getting a warrant," Crump declares.

She notes how much location tracking has been in the news recently. Not a week goes buy, she says, that we don't read about a new development related to location tracking. For example, the Supreme Court is "poised to address the issue of whether or not the Fourth Amendment requires the government to attach GPS devices."

Chicago police MOB frameup for this nasty crack head Leonard Cox. We rented to this man and he baring all the crimes to neighborhood, they are covering for their white MOB frineds.

I DONT HAVE A CRIMINAL RECORD NEVER BEEN IN JAIL AND I LIVED IN CHICAGO FOR 40 YEARS. All the trouble started with this freak Leonard Cox he destroyed the neighborhood after he moved in. Criminals dont start their careers at 35 when their making over 70K a year, this clearly a setup anybody with a brain can see that.

We rented to this man at my old house at 5158 s. Kildare in Chicago and he brang all these crimes to the neighborhood (2 burglarys and garage fire), this man is a 10 yr convict drug addict on welfare, this man was arrested for male prostitution to feed his drug habit, This man could not even pay rent and he said we burglarized him and and brain dead cops believed this, he made false burglary reports with his witness(Maria) they both ran away after. I have over 6 witnesses, audio tapes, police reports to prove all this.  While this crack head was selling his body on the street I was making $70K at AT&T.`


This is the guy Chicago Cops are trying to frame me for. Here's LEONARD COX BACKGROUND CHECK, I got this from a private investigator I hired Security professional in Chicago, I paid $750 to him to find out what was going on in my peaceful neighborhood after Leonard Cox moved in where I lived for 9 years with no trouble before that. He is linked to 2 burglaries and garage fire that were committed while he rented my basement at 5158 S. Kildare ave. All these crimes were done within 100ft from my house where I used to live. He made false burglary reports with his witness Maria(they both ran away after) I have over 6 witnesses, police reports, audio tapes and documents to prove all this.
