There's a reason FBI is "Federal Bureau of Investigation,
not International Bureau of Investigation
At this point, I don't believe the government knows what they are doing.
This new rule is basically giving the government the right to hack people based of a "belief" that someone is doing wrong.
Just a while ago, a security researcher in Florida was arrested for pointing out a vulnerability in a voting website. And apparently, nowadays, if you hack, you are assumed a part of Anon. (Some kid got arrested for trying to change his school grades, and the authorities said he was "an Anon member"). Seems the people in charge should understand what they are interacting with before putting rules and labeling people in a field they know very little about.
What the FBI is basically doing is violating the privacy of everyone, and restarting the whole ideology of McCarthyism all over again. In this era, the FBI is essentially going "yeah, you might be a criminal because you use anomymity software, so we're going to poke through your computer to see if there's anything that can be used against you."
Suddenly it seems "Innocent until proven guilty" doesn't exist anymore. And suddenly, we can incriminate ourselves with this rule.
Also, before I get in trouble for this, I assume the government knows about these ideas in the Constitution and Bill of Rights:
-Freedom of Speech (Amendment 1)
-Right to criticize the government (Amendment 1)
-Innocent until proven guilty (Amendment 6)
-Right to Privacy (Amendment 4)
If the Supreme Court is going to allow the FBI to do this, we would expect an amendment to the Constitution.
And I'm no SC Justice, but seems what the FBI is doing at this point is illegal. And because of the way its been going, I assume government people are above the law?
