WTF People!!!!!

This "stuff" began with GM's "On Star" communication system.
As was very easy to guess, the government started using it to spy on peoples communications then as a "sort of" wire tapping device, so they can hear what is being said in the car.
Personally, I remember when this was first discoved and I mentioned it to my parents...I was called paranoid.........up until the next morning when it was announced on morning news the FBI was being sued for doing this-yeah..I am paranoid ok...

The newest trick of the FBI and probably many three letter government organizations, is to activate the mike on cell phones to illegally spy on them.

The technique is called a "roving bug," and was approved by top U.S. Department of Justice officials for use against members of a New York organized crime family who were wary of conventional surveillance techniques such as tailing a suspect or wiretapping him
