BREAKING: Tuscon, AZ superior court judge says police can use Stingray and doesn't have to answer to anyone. Police state, anyone?
A judge has ruled that Tucson, Ariz., doesn’t have to release records about how it tracks cellphones, which the city argues would aid criminals.

Beau Hodai, a freelance reporter, requested records from the Tucson Police Department in 2013 about the Stingray and Stingray II, cell phone tracking equipment, according to court documents. The equipment acts like a cell tower, and can measure signal strength to determine the location of a phone.

Hodai requested all records created using the equipment, any e-mails about it, and any records about its purchase and maintenance.

The department responded to Hodai’s request with some documents that were partially redacted. Hodai said in the complaint he learned Tucson redacted portions of the documents at the request of Harris Corporation, which produces the Stingray and Stingray II.

Hodai filed a lawsuit in March, saying Tucson violated the law for not releasing the information, but Pima County Superior Court judge Douglas Metcalf ruled on Thursday against him, writing Tucson “is under no obligation to do so because it is not a proper request for records.”

Just right up until the people of the united states stand up and take back their country that is.

It will happen soon.

Like gun laws, spy laws oppress only law-abiding, harmless individuals.
