Michigan TrackerGate: ACLU Speaks To CyberJungle Radio

The row continutes between the Michigan ACLU and the Michigan Law Enforcment tonight. The Michigan ACLU leveled the charge earlier this week that Michigan Law Enforement was asking for hundreds of thousands for dollars for records related to the possible forensic imaging of mobile devices using the well-known Cellebrite UFED.  Michigan Law Enforcement has responded.  In a statement, The Michigan State Police said, “The DEDs [Digital Extraction Devices] are not being used to extract citizens’ personal information during routine traffic stops.” The Michgan State Police also said that there are been no claims that law enforcement has broken any laws in the use of these DEDs.

I interviewed ACLU Staff Attorney Mark Fancher today for a segment in next week’s CyberJungle Radio.  Mark Fancher is with the Racial Jucstice Project at the Michigan ACLU.  The CyberJungle felt it was too important to hold this interview until Monday’s scheduled release at part of the next episode of CyberJungle Radio.
