On surveillance in public: phones and drones and networks, oh my

  • Is the NYPD counterterror unit getting ready to deploy surveillance drones in the city? (Maybe.)
  • Did the BART police block cell phone service on train platforms in order to disrupt a protest against those same police, whom community members charge with repeated and flagrant police violence? (Looks like it.)
  • Is the British government planning to use recent turmoil there as an excuse to broaden police surveillance and network disruption powers? (Yes.)
  • Can you trust the government or major corporations with your private data? (LOL.)
