Judge To FBI: You Can't Tap Into Car Computers In Order To Listen In On Conversations Occuring In Automobiles

While this Judge's ruling is indicative of the obsessive and Gestapo like FBI dogma, the truth is that the FBI is most likely still tapping into car computers to illegally eavesdrop on conversations that are absolutely none of its business. Between the FBI and NSA alone, there is no longer any venue which is private. Not your home, your mind, or anywhere else on this planet where you are safe from the prying eyes and ears of the criminal US Intel community.

When your own electromagnetic fields and brainwaves can be picked up by an NSA supercomputer and used against you, it is time to take a stand against such outrageous oppression.

*I have personally experienced having the door locks on a family automobile opened by way of satellite as I was driving, as well as the alarm on the car being set off while it was in motion. So it's clear that our cars are as open to US Intel subversion as our homes, minds and bodies are.

The truth of the matter is that it's the Goddamn FBI, NSA and the rest of US Intel that are the terrorists here!

In a split 2-1 ruling the majority wrote that "the company could not assist the FBI without disabling the system in the monitored car" and said a district judge was wrong to have granted the FBI its request for surreptitious monitoring.

The court did not reveal which brand of remote-assistance product was being used but did say it involved "luxury cars" and, in a footnote, mentioned Cadillac, which sells General Motors' OnStar technology in all current models. After learning that the unnamed system could be remotely activated to eavesdrop on conversations after a car was reported stolen, the FBI realized it would be useful for "bugging" a vehicle, Judges Marsha Berzon and John Noonan said.

When FBI agents remotely activated the system and were listening in, passengers in the vehicle could not tell that their conversations were being monitored. After "vehicle recovery mode" was disabled, the court said, passengers were notified by the radio displaying an alert and, if the radio was not on, the system beeping
