I talked to my aunt about this who is a defense attorney that works on death penalty cases. You see, in order for any wiretapping to be legal, there
must be a warrant - and that warrant must be issued for both a specific person and a specific place (computer, website, etc.)
Therefore, roving wiretaps are patently unconstitutional, end of story, END OF STORY. The truth of the matter is, the intelligence agencies know that
they are unconstitutional, because they are training police officers and F.B.I. Agents to lie about how they got the information and the process they
used for probable cause, getting a warrant, etc.
However, know this - when you hire an attorney to defend yourself against a case, you must file for discovery, this means that the police or F.B.I.
Agents will be forced to give you their files, and if they lied about or reconstructed the case, the case WILL BE THROWN OUT OF COURT.
What I'm saying is, if we want to stop the illegal N.S.A. wiretaps, we are going to have to promote this strategy and hopefully keep a lot of
criminals, drug dealers and terrorists OUT from behind bars by getting their cases thrown out of court.
It is only when criminals are winning cases because of this left and right and walking free that things will change. There could be other ways to do
it, but this one seems pretty effective
In fact, I am probably getting a case thrown out of court next month (about something minor) because I was smart enough to ask my attorney to file for
discovery, and the police lied about how they got probable cause.
The truth of the matter is, the police and federal agents are so corrupt these days that it is a get out of jail free card. Since they aren't spending
any time doing legitimate law enforcement, the chances of actually getting caught for something in a manner that won't get thrown out of court if you
file for discovery could be quite low.
