Fergie Fishing (UPDATE)

Now Brownie is asking officers not to erase any Department business they may have conducted on personal devices (phones, computers, etc.) as Fergie expands his fishing expedition:

This is Fergie fishing for info. Without a warrant and without any standing. Get bent.

We would assume that any info we accessed is stored alongside the Lieutenant Testing scandal e-mails that Ferguson couldn't find. The ones that list how much group members had to pay for the answers and testing material. The material that was left on the copy machine on the fifth floor. And the list of names who were approved to be in a certain room off-hours at HQ to meet with Gene Williams.

UPDATE: The Contrarian rakes Fergie over the coals in a lengthy piece.

not CPD but when I worked on the east coast I had two phones- my regular phone and my crappy pay-as-you-go flip phone. Two advantages. First, I left that second phone at home if I was going somewhere I didn't want work calling. Sorry, I'm off, and you aren't paying me to be on-call. Second- if some shit ever hit the fan and someone started demanding phones, I'd hand that one over and not feel bad about it. Maybe they could see how many tetris games I'd played over the past year but that would be it- no personal info, no .

Damn, I just dropped my phone in the toilet and flushed three times. What's even worse is when I pulled it out and went to shake it dry, it flew out the window, got run over by a garbage truck and some stranger walking by with his saltwater fish tank accidentally spilled it all over my phone. Then I thought it would help if I dried it by heating it up, so I threw it on the grill. Well that didn't help at all! Oh well, sorry fergie but accidents do happen.

Oh snap! Seeing as I was never personally served with such an order I didn’t know anything about it and deleted everything on my phone. All the racist messages and unlawful orders my Commander sent via text and email will never be found. The best was the hidden camera pictures of female officers he sent from his phones will never be found now. Now if they confiscated My commanders work and personal phone we would be really screwed! Even the deputy chief sent a couple racist texts from his phones! We are screwed!

were looting, burning, destroying? I believe they ARE out to get you!

You are under NO obligation to keep anything saved the department may have
sent you......and you ABSENT A WARRANT OR SUBPOENA are under NO obligation

But don’t even play their game......DELETE DELETE DELETE.....transfer ownership of phone/and phone accounts NOW...
If you must, hammer the shit out of it,..,,Into a million little pieces....get a burner to use at work
With a new phone number for work usage ONLY.....

Maybe you should get involved with the union and you would know that they addressed this issue specifically at last nights general meeting.

Here it is in its simplest explanation: The union immediately inquired on behalf of the membership. City attorneys promised this was NOT a fishing expedition for the rank & file, rather any inquiries they might ultimately make via phone/computer records will focus on transmissions between supervisors assigned to orchestrate the departments response to the riots. In short they want to use any mistakes uncovered as teaching moments to avoid the same mistakes going forward. You know, like in November when Trump is reelected and all the snowflakes start melting again and domestic terrorists begin their rioting anew.

That said, if you were on any scene where some Bosshole fucked up by making the wrong strategic call and you were texting, emailing or FB-ing it like some high school girl you should realistically expect it to be a distinct possibility that the city attorneys might be subpoenaing all these records from your service providers. And even if that is the case, there is a very limited scope of timeframe and content they would look at, and it would have to be specific to the particular incident they might be investigating.

So don’t sweat it, champ. Unless you’re one of the sacrificial lambs involved with the Bobby Rush caper and you texted pix to your friends saying how you pissed in the water reservoir of his coffee maker before you left the scene, you should be all right.

Don't use your personal phone at work for any reason, don't bring your personal phone to work because while on duty, you are paid to do work, not to conduct personal business or make personal calls to pass the time. Do not call from a crime scene, do not receive or send work-related messages, etc.

There is case law that if you are a public employee, and you use your personal device for your work while on duty, then your personal device is subject to scrutiny, can be accessed to see if you have biases, and may be used for impeachment by the defense.

There are many related articles if you search "case law personal phone government business."

Remember the Blues Brothers when they were given a playlist in the bar? "Oh, these are just requests...*toss*"

Same thing applies here. It's a "REQUEST" - YOU get to decide whether it's granted or not. If it's DENIED by YOU, then THEY can get a warrant based upon PROBABLE CAUSE. Let them go get 10,000 warrants - one for each copper.

Make sure the FOP fights against THEM going on a fishing expedition and trying to get a blanket warrant. Make the Shitty pull INDIVIDUAL WARRANTS, sworn out, based upon PROBABLE CAUSE. Make sure the FOP shows up to any Ex Parte proceeding and motions to have the WARRANT quashed. Demand that the City PRODUCE all probable cause for EACH warrant. Dispute the alleged probable cause.

Tie their asses up in Court for 100 years. Hell, 10 years will do it - those phones will be long gone in 10 years, dead batteries, run over, lost in a boating accident, stolen, kid flushed it down the toilet, dog ate it, dumb ass cousin tossed it in the bonfire at the family picnic because he's mad you stole his Gi Jo with the Kung Fu grip back in the 70's... whatever.

Any "Superior" asking for it, say "What phone?" - hell, even if it RINGS 30 seconds later and he see's it. "That is not a phone." What is it? "It's not a phone, what are you talking about?" then WALK AWAY.

Ignore and treat with disdain all such bullshit foisted upon you by the City because they've done the same to you as they foist mountains of shit upon ye.

Nothing broadcast is really secure if someone really wanted to go after it. Only encryption that is 100% secure is a properly constructed one time pad.

The disappearing messages in Signal are automatically deleted after a specific interval of time set up by the sender. ... The security expert Alec Muffett discovered that the messages once disappeared can still be recovered from the recipient's device.

Yes, hackers and governments may pay less attention to Telegram and Signal because of their smaller base. And Signal is open-source, so techies can check the code for vulnerabilities and fixes. ... End-to-end encryption does not work, if there are vulnerabilities in the operating system," Mishra told IANS.

To the idiot that posted the links of the personal cell phone rulings. Try reading first. Neither one of them pertain to anything that we re talking about, not to mention those were 2010-2011 rulings, and mostly talked about personal cell phone records, Not actually getting into a cellphone. Any Officer or Detective on here who routinely writes search warrants for phones knows, now a days , you’re not getting into a personal cell phone, even if used in duty , with a signed warrant. They can’t even compel you to turn over your personal phone without a court order. Administrative investigations won’t cut it, unless they can tie it to a crime. We can’t go fishing, neither can they. And we write them for serious offenses. You also need a search warrant for Personal GPS location. They do not accept GJ subpoenas anymore as of a couple years ago. It’s very simple, If asked, refuse and contact an FOP attorney. You cannot be ordered to turn over your cell phone or give them your pass code.
