FBI Kills 911 Service To 100,000 During Piracy Raid
WFAA: The FBI hauled away millions worth of computer servers from a company called Core IP Networks during a Wednesday raid in downtown Dallas.
But it affected a number of businesses that were not under investigation and about 100,000 phone customers across the country have lost part of their 911 service.
Matthew Simpson is the owner of that company. He says his home was also raided.
Simpson says the FBI is after a former client who may have used servers to pirate movies and software.
These actions shine a big, beautiful spotlight on total hijacking of democracy by big business and corporate interests. Why is it that MILLION$ of taxpayer dollars are being spent on these piracy investigations when they have so many other, much bigger and more dangerous enemies abroad?!
If the investigations are for piracy or more accurately copyright infringement then the matter is a civil one and it is up to the copyright holders to bring a case against those individuals or companies that are infringing on their copyright. That IS the law as I understand it.
Now what big media and corporate America want is for this burden of protection to be shifted onto the backs of the taxpayers. Why? Well to make more money of course. After all you can’t make a lot of money if you have to hire lawyers and spend $100,000’s to prosecute downloaders for a $20.00 movie now can you.
So one has to wonder why in a time where Americans are so desperate jobs, credit and a reasonable quality of life that the FBI feels the burning needs to spend MILLION$ to chase down – downloaders rather than spend an appropriate amount of investigative resources on tracking down the white shirt criminals on Wall St. that brought the world to the brink of financial collapse?
Because it’s NOT about the needs of the many now is it. It’s about maintaining that vaulted position for those privileged few of the rich and ruling class, no matter what the human or financial cost!
It’s time for us to take back our democracies and end this idiotic and terrible misuses of OUR law enforcement agencies. And given the coming storm from south of the Mexican border it boggles the minds that U.S. law enforcement would chose to spend so much money to track down the downloaders rather than put a stop to the flow of drugs and gangs over the Mexican/U.S. border.
Too bad Bin Landen doesn’t smoke pot or download movies. U.S. law enforcement would have had him in custody years ago!
