Americans "Deserve Answers" About DOJ’s Expanded Hacking Authority

Since when has "deserving answers" ever gotten the American public anything? That's crazy talk. The sooner you realize that giving law enforcement the authority to remotely hack anyone's computer, for any reason, is for the greater good, the better off we will all be. wink

On December 1, a new rule will likely go into effect at the Justice Department that may expand law enforcement agencies’ authority to remotely hack into computers and take what data they find there during an investigation. Lawmakers have been pressing the DOJ for more information on the rule, specifically why the agency wants this authority, and what it plans to do with it, but they now say the folks in Justice are only providing non-answers.
