Wireless Firms Are Flooded by Requests to Aid Surveillance

This is starting to get spooky. ‘…In the first public accounting of its kind, cellphone carriers reported that they responded to a startling 1.3 million demands for subscriber information last year from law enforcement agencies seeking text messages, caller locations and other information in the course of investigations…’

Now think in terms of ‘…AT&T alone now responds to an average of more than 700 requests a day, with about 230 of them regarded as emergencies that do not require the normal court orders and subpoena…’

Then there is the point made for us to trust them that just because they have the authority it will not be abused ‘….the F.B.I. was widely criticized for improperly using emergency letters to the phone companies to gather records on thousands of phone numbers in counterterrorism investigations that did not involve emergencies. ..’

An then there was vigilante justice. With such abuses, what are the odds that much of this is not done for law enforcement doing private stalking?
