How Police Can Illegally Wiretap Your Phone

from 21st Century Wire:

How do you know if a government of law enforcement agency has hacked your personal device? The truth of the matter is: most of the time you don’t.

While America continues to fixate on the drama-filled reality show scripted by the powers-that-be, directed from the nation’s capital, and played out in high definition across the country, the American Police State has moved steadily forward.
