If we did it, it's cyberterrorism. If they do it, it's law enforcement.

Assholes.

They are part of the government, you are an individual citizen. Do you somehow not see the difference? Is this a difficult point for you?

When was the last time that you personally passed a zoning ordinance and fined people for not obeying it?
When was the last time that you personally arrested and imprisoned someone after their appeal to your personal court failed?
When was the last time that you imposed and collected taxes?
Does any of this ring a bell?

A few of them probably should be hung for treason.

Until you can reliably discern the difference between the powers wielded by a government and you as an individual citizen you aren't really qualified to make any claims of treason.

Morally, every black hat should be targeting these agencies to cause as much damage to them as possible -- because the damage they're doing to our freedoms is immeasurable.

What could possibly go wrong? And of course "black hat" hackers are not a problem in any way.
To the extend that you aren't "free" it appears to be mainly due to being captive to some crank ideas.

Thanks, America, for leading the charge in fucking up the planet.

Unserious and apparently unmedicated.

Will your spleen be empty any time soon?

Remember this statement?

If this were a legitimate concern why can he not point to a single incident of someone doing exactly this rather than merely spreading FUD?

Apparently it is a legitimate concern and your view isn't worth much.

BTW - That "single" incident resulted in two assassinated police officers.

+ - Russian oil tycoons behind US "greens"?->

mi (197448) writes "A shadowy Bermudan company that has funneled tens of millions of dollars to anti-fracking environmentalist groups in the United States is run by executives with deep ties to Russian oil interests and offshore money laundering schemes involving members of President Vladimir Putin’s inner circle.

With oil prices plunging as a result of a fracking-induced oil glut in the United States, experts say the links between Russian oil interests, secretive foreign political donors, and high-profile American environmentalists suggest Russia may be backing anti-fracking efforts in the United States."

Waze has been around for over 6 years. If this were a legitimate concern why can he not point to a single incident of someone doing exactly this rather than merely spreading FUD?

You seem to have missed some news stories.

NYPD Cop Killer Used App to Track Police Movements Since Early December

NYPD Cop killer Ismaaiyl Brinsley was using a traffic app called Waze to track law enforcement’s movements, NYC Alerts tweeted on Monday. According to an available screenshot, Brinsley was tracking two officers who were almost 4 miles away from him in Staten Island at 10:44 PM EST since the beginning of December.

It should be easier for a citizen to find the police. They are public servants, and they are there to help us. Right? An app that shows where the nearest police officer is located should even be tax funded, possibly.

Maybe you could explain why 911 isn't going to work but this phone app would?

The "nearest" police officer may not be available to help with your problem since she may be engaged in another issue. Is your plan to bounce from "nearest" police officer to "nearest" police officer until you find one available to go back to where you had an issue to help you? And that is an improvement on calling 911 how?

You're trying to put lipstick on a pig of an idea.

Even though the police are "public servants," that doesn't make you their boss.

Many people on Slashdot put far too much effort in trying to rationalize bad ideas.

I looked for the words "untrue" in your post and didn't see them. That's the real problem, the reports are true, so you have to try to disparage the source.

And no, the Daily Caller isn't "extremist right wing." Forbes is an ordinary news source.

The problem is that you aren't concerned with truth, only political alignment.

you idiot.

they didn't falsely attack private citizens.
they weren't an attack tool of the DNC.
they ddnt lie to congress.

the entire IRS "scandal" was manufactured from whole cloth.

There seems to be a very large gap between your understanding of events and the facts. Here is a modest start for you.

IRS admits targeting conservatives for tax scrutiny in 2012 election

The IRS Scandal, Day 623

Ex-IRS official Lois Lerner reportedly pleaded with her supervisor not to deeply inquire about whether the IRS had unfairly targeted Tea Party and conservative groups for tax-exempt status just ahead of the 2012 presidential election, according to new emails obtained by a government watchdog group.

Joseph H. Grant, former Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division deputy director, was specifically asked by Lerner to refrain from visiting the tax agency's Cincinnati office and keep from asking specific questions related to any Congressional inquiries, according to emails obtained by Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act Lawsuit.

Lerner wanted to work for Obama activist group

I was wondering how long it would take before the slashdot conservative majority brought out that conspiracy conjecture again.

So, you're here to "correct the record" and explain why the IRS really didn't do it even though they admitted it? Clueless and hopeless.

The question isn't "did they do it," but how much are they covering up and how close does it get to the seats of Democratic party power?
