Legal "A diverse coalition of 19 groups announced today a lawsuit against the United States government for 'an illegal and unconstitutional program of dragnet electronic surveillance', known as the Associational Tracking Program, which collects all telephone records handled by Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint in the US. The group, represented by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, aims to compel the government to inventory and disclose the records in its possession, to destroy them, and to immediately end the surveillance program."

At least you'd hope it doesn't just spray back in your own face.
But those in power seem to have created a two tier justice system; it's OK for the nobles to break the rules or rewrite them as they see fit. For the commoner.. not so much.
