So we can all look forward to massive lawsuits spanning at least five years before enough palms are greased and beaks wetted to release this magic to the proles.

There's that little matter of the ex post facto telecom immunity law passed back in 2008. Everyone gets off scott free.

And with his vote to give them a free pass, I realized Senator Obama was no different than any other politician. This might have even been a requirement to show his compliant deference to the military-surveillance state before he would be allowed to run for POTUS.

The fact that there is still no official, nationwide, legally-required (upon pain of zero Fed cash for anything) system to record and disseminate statistics of all LEO-involved violence up to and including deaths (or more accurately: murder by cop of minorities) by every method is not just a casual mistake.

This is also why social (mobile) media is so despised by the LEO crowd: it exposes their abuses to world, where in the 'good old days', well who *wouldn't* believe Officer Bob's statements that he 'had no choice' and 'felt threatened' by that no good Nig^h^h^h thug.
