U.S. government seeks Facebook help to wiretap Messenger - sources

Yeah, they're just private companies. Looks to me like govt is more and more behind this crap. We know, from past govt behavior, this will go beyond criminal probes. Why can't the govt just get a warrant for a suspect instead, then compel FB to comply with a specific request?

In other news, Sen Warner (D) is making moves for the govt to take control of the internet. If Democrats win the MidTerms for a majority, they will do this.
U.S. government seeks Facebook help to wiretap Messenger

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The U.S. government is trying to force Facebook Inc (FB.O) to break the encryption in its popular Messenger app so law enforcement may listen to a suspect’s voice conversations in a criminal probe, three people briefed on the case said, resurrecting the issue of whether companies can be compelled to alter their products to enable surveillance.

The previously unreported case in a federal court in California is proceeding under seal, so no filings are publicly available, but the three people told Reuters that Facebook is contesting the U.S. Department of Justice’s demand.

The judge in the Messenger case heard arguments on Tuesday on a government motion to hold Facebook in contempt of court for refusing to carry out the surveillance request, according to the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Facebook and the Department of Justice declined to comment.

The Messenger issue arose in Fresno, California, as part of an investigation of the MS-13 gang, one of the people said.

It's what you use for sending private messengers on FB.

I know. It was a joke. It's that I've only used it a handful of times. So they can spy on them all they want (if they're bored). Come to think of it, they'll be pretty bored if they spy on my regular texts too.

I read the whole article - and the FBI is seeking a "wiretap" for FB messenger.

So the warrant would exist pre-tapping (or we are led to believe it would EACH time).

That said - Facebook, as days/months go by, continue to prove to be more and more like a public utility.

If an agency can get a warrant/wire-tap for a line of communication - I think it's not too big of a leap to consider that line of communication a public utility.

I think we're headed towards this anyways......got a feeling some draconian internet usage laws are headed our way, and no more anonymity surfing/communicating via the web.

Warner (D-VA) has already made moves for the govt to seize the internet. Very, very bad idea. If you think the quasi-private platforms like FB, Twitter, Google, You Tube are bad now—this will be much worse. The pretense is to protect us from "fake news" and Russian bots.

Even Firefox is getting on the censorship wagon. That these moves are happening together at the same time, it shows coordination between platforms and imo fits the idea of market collusion.

Ever since 9/11 we've been seeing the Bill of Rights are repeated govt infringements and attacks by the left with some on the right ( security ones).

It's best to just assume that someone is reading all your PMs on social media. You can't trust Google or Facebook any more than you can trust the government. Maybe even less, since they exist to sell you to advertisers.

If they'd let me know when they're spying, I'll be happy to go LeeBrown for their viewing pleasure.

Social media, with their newfound love of censorship, should be really careful about their relationship with the government.
