Documented FBI Violations from 2001 - 2008
[link to www.eff.org]

In a review of nearly 2,500 pages of documents released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a result of litigation under the Freedom of Information Act, EFF uncovered alarming trends in the Bureauís intelligence investigation practices. The documents consist of reports made by the FBI to the Intelligence Oversight Board of violations committed during intelligence investigations from 2001 to 2008. The documents suggest that FBI intelligence investigations have compromised the civil liberties of American citizens far more frequently, and to a greater extent, than was previously assumed.

The Inspector General has acknowledged that as many as 6,400 potential NSL violations may have occurred between 2003-2006

I'm sure it's a lot higher.

For example, in a violation reported in 2006, the FBI requested email header information for two email addresses used by a U.S. person:

In response, the email service provider returned two CDs containing the full content of all emails in the accounts.
The FBI eventually (and properly) sequestered the CDs, notified the email provider of the overproduction, and re-issued an NSL for the originally requested header information; but, in response to the second NSL, the email provider again provided the FBI with the full content of all emails in the accounts.

Works both ways. We don't need alphabets requesting info that's not important but WE ALSO NEED ISP's, Banks and other institutions to QUESTION THESE REQUESTS and only give what they are required by law to do so.

Or they could go out of business before giving out any info. Would be stupid of them of course but I can hope.

Yeah good point. Companies are all to willing to bend over backwards and help the government ignore the peoples rights.

When citizens break laws we're punished.

When government break laws ... we're punished.
