http://skunkpost.com

On Friday, U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer ruled that Internet subscribers have "no expectation of privacy" after giving their contact information to their ISP. The case in question specifically regarded alleged file-trading of a copyrighted movie, but establishes a long-reaching precedent for Internet users at large, since that would cover all forms of communications to or from any computer connected to an ISP to which its owner subscribes.

The Assault Intervention Device appears uniquely suited to address some of the more difficult inmate violence issues without the drawbacks of tools currently available to us."
