Court Rules That Mass Surveillance of Americans is Immune From Judicial Review


Court Rules That Mass Surveillance of Americans is Immune From Judicial Review… In the ruling, issued late Thursday, U.S. District Court Chief Judge Vaughn Walker held that the privacy harm to millions of Americans from the illegal spying dragnet was not a “particularized injury” but instead a “generalized grievance” because almost everyone in the United States has a phone and Internet service.

Ha ha ha… And when you think you’ve heard it all, at least for one day, more shit gets flung on your face! It’s piling up people! Where the hell is this going?

  1. Would the judge's theory apply to the following… 100 people are dining in a restaurant; they happen to have a little bit of cash on them. Then, a bunch of thugs go in the restaurant and forcefully and unlawfully relieve all patrons of their money, would that be "a crime", a "particularized injury", or would it be a "generalized grievance" and thus go unpunished? That's some scary crap, people…
