• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Police Seize Camera With Pitt-Jolie Photos
http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/wireStory?id=2143350
Not if the case that they seized the camera in reference to involved presidential security, crimes against the monetary system, or related items... from Wikipedia:

"The Secret Service has primary jurisdiction over the prevention of counterfeiting of U.S. currency and U.S. treasury bonds and notes, and protection of the President, Vice President, their immediate families, other high ranking government officials, past presidents and their spouses, certain candidates for the offices of President and Vice President, and visiting foreign heads of state and government (all called "protectees"). It also investigates a wide variety of financial fraud crimes and identity theft and provides forensics assistance for some local crimes."

Seems to me that ABC didn't have anything better to do than to spin the article like it was a big deal that the pictures on the camera were of Pitt & Jolie.

evidently not! Maybe they can be put to better use with something more pressing to homeland security like locating Bin Ladin, I mean Jimmy Hoffa. :lol:
