One has to wonder how and why these government agencies can justify their actions of monitoring phone calls,E-mails, and texting. Blantly violating our rights to privicy in the name of national security, and they CAN'T stop social media flash mobs from commiting random acts of violence in our communitys .
Can anyone explain this ?

(mods move post to prefered forum as needed.)

Collective paranoia seems to be the justification. I also think that the MIC branching out into the homeland security business could explain a lot. It is a worrying trend with terrifying consequences.

So is a simple phone call to local authoritys warning them of suspicious activity out of the question ?
Isn't that what happened in Boston ?

I wouldn't blame the agencies so much as the person setting the priorities.

Executive Order 12333


(b) The United States Government has a solemn obligation, and shall continue in the conduct of intelligence activities under this order, to protect fully the legal rights of all United States persons, including freedoms, civil liberties, and privacy rights guaranteed by Federal law.

(c) Intelligence collection under this order should be guided by the need for information to respond to intelligence priorities set by the President.
