The Tallahassee Police Department is under fire for using a nifty cell cite simulator device called a “Stingray” (http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2013/09/meet-the-machines-that-steal-your-phones-data/) to track your cell calls, texts, and location! Better yet, TPD claimed they didn’t get warrants for these searches (at least 200 since 2010) because it would’ve violated a non-disclosure agreement they had with Harris-Corp., the multi-billion dollar technology company that loaned them the device.

So non-disclosure agreements with corporations regarding illegal police spying technology are more important than the U.S. Constitution?

The ACLU doesn’t think so, and they’re on the case:
