from the call-911 dept.

Information obtained via right-to-know request revealed The New Jersey State Police spent at least $850,000 on stingray devices from Harris Corp.

Authorities didn't respond to NBC10's request to discuss the use of the technology described in more than 100 pages of invoices and other heavily redacted documents detailing the devices purchased. Jeanne LoCicero, deputy legal director ACLU of New Jersey, asked for the same documents that NBC10 sought and received the same response from the department upon further inquiry.

[...] New Jersey State Police department's lack of transparency on the device is not uncommon from what has been seen with other law enforcement agencies at both the local and federal level when similar requests have been made.

    Surely Republicans (you know, the ones who are against any type of government regulations) wouldn't force anyone to bear the burden of needing a broadcasting license, now would they? I don't see your problem...

    I'm more in the market for a powerful and reusable EMP device. (I'm still not quite sure what to do with my casio watch - hey... who's knocking on my door and why is my phone suddenly glitchi^H^H^H [carrier lost])
