US Navy was caught using program called RoundUp to scan every computer connected to the internet in the United States.
The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals heard the case of Michael Allan Dreyer who was convicted by evidence fabricated or discovered by a Navy computer specialist.
At the end of the trial the judge exclaimed:
“The extraordinary nature of the surveillance here demonstrates a need to deter future violations,” the court ruled. “So far as we can tell from the record, it has become a routine practice for the Navy to conduct surveillance of all the civilian computers in an entire state to see whether any child pornography can be found on them, and then to turn over the information to civilian law enforcement when no military connection exists. This is squarely a case of the military undertaking the initiative to enforce civilian law against civilians.”
The ruling continued, “Agent Logan carried out these searches repeatedly. He was monitoring another computer at the same time that he found Dreyer’s IP address. And he was involved with at least twenty other child pornography investigations. Further, Agent Logan was not the only NCIS agent who engaged in such searches.”
The mere assertion that corporations and the government are inserting pictures or videos with child pornography onto the computers of innocent citizens with the hope of destroying lives speaks volumes for the treatment and dehumanization citizens have gone through under the Obama Administration within its military command structures.
