I, Incompetent ?, Spy

Apart from all the constitutional and privacy issues regarding such activities by federal or state authorities, one thing that stands out in this case is the sheer incompetence of the officials involved.

Seriously FBI, no matter how black your suits are or how many lights your unmarked cars have, with equipment like this even wily coyote won’t have trouble figuring out what you’re upto.

On another note, be careful what you write, say or even think, or you’ll have goons on your trail in no time. Or at least that’s what the authorities would have people believe, judging by their actions. In this case, the “suspect” in question was being tracked because a friend of his said something provocative/inflammatory on an online message board.

America, what good with all this wealth, prosperity and power be if the soundtrack to your life becomes “Every move you make, I’ll be watching you” … ?
