Gizmodo: Prosecutor Claims Social Media Surveillance of Black Lives Matter Members Wasn’t Surveillance

Gizmodo: Prosecutor Claims Social Media Surveillance of Black Lives Matter Members Wasn’t Surveillance. “Six local Black Lives Matter members in Clarkstown, New York have filed a federal suit against the town, its chief of police, police sergeant, and its Special Investigations Unit, accusing them of racial profiling and illegal surveillance that violated their first and 14th amendment rights. In a response to a local news outlet, Rockland County District Attorney Thomas Zugibe denied the charges. The SIU, he says, does not engage in the illegal surveillance BLM members have alleged.” The comments section is half interesting legal debate about using public information for surveillance and … half is not, unfortunately.
