Congress Is Irrelevant on Mass Surveillance. Here’s What Matters Instead.

11-24-2014  The last place one should look to impose limits on the powers of the US government is . . . the US government. Governments don’t walk around trying to figure out how to limit their own power, and that’s particularly true of empires.

FERGUSON ERUPTS AFTER NO INDICTMENT FOR DARREN WILSON “A grand jury has decided not to indict Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson for killing 18-year-old Michael Brown, St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch announced Monday. McCulloch said members of the jury met for 25 days and heard over 70 hours of testimony from over 60 witnesses before reaching their decision. He confirmed Wilson had fired 12 shots at Brown, who was unarmed.” Here’s a visual interpretation of the witnesses’ accounts of events, and all of the testimony and evidence from the case is available online. While the grand jury has decided not to indict, a potential civil lawsuit looms and a Justice Department investigation is ongoing. Despite widespread calls for peaceful protests, police described the fires and looting in Ferguson following the announcement as much worse than anything they’d seen in August. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has compiled a map of the damage. [HuffPost]

ACROSS THE COUNTRY, A WAVE OF PROTESTS “Thousands of people across the nation turned out Monday night to show solidarity with the protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, after a grand jury decided not to indict the officer who shot Michael Brown. Crowds of people gathered in Times Square, outside the White House gates and in downtown Philadelphia. Many protesters were shouting, ‘Hands up, don’t shoot’ — a phrase that has become linked to protests over the Aug. 9 shooting of Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager, by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.” More protests are expected throughout the country today.
