When It Comes To Spy Gear, Many Police Ignore Public Records Laws 78

Posted by timothy
from the muck-rocks! dept.
v3rgEz writes What should take precedence: State public records laws, or contractual agreements between local police, the FBI, and the privately owned Harris Corporation? That's the question being played out across the country, as agencies are strongly divided on releasing much information, if any, on how they're using Stingray technology to collect and monitor phone metadata without judicial oversight.

I know you think you said something clever, but I should point out that there was a time when Apple didn't know how to make phones or run retail stores. They found and hired the experts they needed to become world leaders in those lines of business.

I'm going way out on a limb here, but it seems to me that if Apple gets into the car business, they'll do so by hiring the top automotive engineers and designers in the world. I know they can outbid anyone else for them.
