Civil rights groups unite to oppose law enforcement hacking

California residents are likely aware that several high-profile whistleblowers have come forward to expose massive surveillance programs operated by federal agencies such as the National Security Agency, but they may not know that about a technique being used by government agents known as law enforcement hacking. The Fourth Amendment protects Americans against unreasonable searches and seizures, and civil rights advocates claim that law enforcement hacking violates these rights by allowing federal agents to monitor the online activities of thousands of U.S. citizens after obtaining just one search warrant.

California residents may know that alcohol and marijuana are the two most commonly used substances for those who drive while impaired. However, substances such as heroin, cocaine and prescription drugs are all also being used by those who have been found impaired while in a vehicle. One viral video showed an Ohio man passed out in a van while it was in gear.
