Michigan State Police are accused of stealing driver’s cell phone data on routine traffic stops. Michigan has become a digital police state.
And if people in Michigan just stand by and let this digital totalitarian crap continue, it will probably come to your state too. We are a nation of copycats after all, governments in the United States like to take other people’s ideas to control people and make them their own.
Now I’m assuming that the cops are taking people’s phones during traffic stops and plugging it into the machine the machine they supposedly have, because that’s what most of the stories have said. However, a story from the Detroit News on April 13 said that the devices were able to get this information from the phones without the owner’s knowledge.
