Activists win access to NYPD’s Black Lives Matter surveillance files

  • A New York judge has ordered the New York Police Department to divulge files showing how it surveilled Black Lives Matter demonstrations two years ago, a group of activists announced Wednesday.
  • According to a written decision by Judge Manuel Mendez, the NYPD must release records of the undercover surveillance it conducted on BLM protests related to the police-involved death of Eric Garner
  • The activists, whose initial request seeking the records was initially denied by the NYPD, learned through court documents in September that officials have files that match their request, as well as records of communication between the undercover officers assigned to the demonstrations and officers’ handlers.

Obama's Parting Blow Against Privacy
The NSA is relaxing its privacy rules, allowing more information on the private communications of Americans to be sent to 15 different intelligence agencies.
By Conor Friedersdorf

The outgoing Obama administration has just made NSA-collected data available to 17 different federal agencies, providing myriad new possible ways for mass data collection to be abused. And just in time for President Trump.

JUST BECAUSE A DEMOCRAT DOES IT DOES NOT MAKE IT OK. THIS WAS A STUPID IDEA.

Stopping the Spread of Superbugs
Since the discovery of penicillin, almost every type of bacteria is becoming resistant to the antibiotic designed to treat it.
By Melvin Sanicas

At least 700,000 die each year from antibiotic-resistant infections. If we fail to take the necessary precautions, they could kill some 10M people each year by 2050. That’s 1 death every 3 seconds.

All the powerful surveillance tools President Trump will have at his disposal

National Security Agency

The National Security Agency is far from transparent in how it runs surveillance and gathers data on U.S. citizens, and the intelligence agency does not need Congressional approval to make changes. Even though President Obama implemented new restrictions on surveillance last year, the NSA still has the power to ask companies for data, and by law the companies have to follow through. The growing concern with NSA surveillance under a Trump presidency is largely rooted in Americans’ civil rights.

Drone Program

The president has the right to order a drone strike to kill suspected terrorists without charges or a trial. Earlier this year, in a New York Times op-ed, two ACLU lawyers warned that “whoever prevails in November will inherit a sweeping power to use lethal force against suspected terrorists and militants, including Americans.”

PRISM Program

The NSA’s PRISM program gathers data — email, instant-message chats and videos — from major tech companies like Google and Facebook.  According to the Washington Post, that data is shared by the NSA with the FBI and CIA. Existence of this surveillance tool was brought to light when documents from 2013 were leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

And then there’s net neutrality.
