What the CIA did will get American captives hurt. And will add the the recruiting tools of extremist. In the end it will be American citizens who are hurt by this. Untold billions of dollars well spent.
Everybody keeps getting outraged about all these huge data breaches (Target, Home Depot, The Fappenning, Sony) but, no one seems to care where the root of the problem lies.
The NSA maintains dossiers of zero day vulnerabilities for virtually every software and hardware platform on earth.

I don't know whether this particular cop is guilty or not. From what I have read, it doesn't look good. But, this would not be the first time a cop got away with, literal, murder. Good cops everywhere need to start standing up against these types of crimes...
Many in this country, the youth especially, are beginning to view the police force in America as a hostile, occupying force. If cops and DAs keep standing behind their blue wall of silence, and this way of thinking continues unabashed, these officers jobs will only become more dangerous. Distrust is growing. Hate is breeding. If it is not diffused soon, it could become a big problem in major cities.
Chicago is basically a warzone already. Due, in large part, to a long history brutality and distrust. When the police cannot be trusted, criminals rise to power. (http://en.wikipedia....s_and_brutality)
Imagine that type of violence spreading to NYC, LA, HOU, OKC, etc.
These criminals with badges need to be brought to justice like the rest of us. And until the good people in law enforcement are willing to stand up and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law, distrust will continue to breed.
