    U.S. Marshals Seize Cops’ Spying Records to Keep Them From the ACLU

    A routine request in Florida for public records regarding the use of a surveillance tool known as stingray took an extraordinary turn recently when federal authorities seized the documents before police could release them.The surprise move by the U.S. Marshals Service stunned the American Civil Liberties Union, which earlier this year filed the public records request with the Sarasota, Florida, police department for information detailing its use of the controversial surveillance tool.
    The ACLU had an appointment last Tuesday to review documents pertaining to a case investigated by a Sarasota police detective. But marshals swooped in at the last minute to grab the records, claiming they belong to the U.S. Marshals Service and barring the police from releasing them.
    ACLU staff attorney Nathan Freed Wessler called the move “truly extraordinary and beyond the worst transparency violations” the group has seen regarding documents detailing police use of the technology.

    I don't oft side against groups like the US Marshals nor with the ACLU, but when I do you know I'm in the RIGHT.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I have a love/hate situation with the ACLU but it would be interesting to know who issued the pick-up order and specifically why.... non specific H S situations are too vague for my comfort.

    Interesting.

    Enjoy life

    While more to the story is important, the whole thing stinks.

    Sometimes the aclu can be an equal opportunity pain in the ass.This to me looks like one of them times.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    That's my thought: who gave the Marshal's their marching orders. Was it Holder? If so, who gave him his marching orders or did he act unilaterally?

    This sure smells like something Holder would do.

    Either that or "rogue, low-level employees."

    Those ARE the most relevant questions!

    Do we have government run amok?

    Government doesn't really want us to know what they are doing because they know what they are doing isn't right.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I suppose a FOIA request is out of the question?
