To catch a terrorist: Pols see child porn laws as model for tracking jihadists

by Adam Shaw  |  published on December 23, 2015

Lawmakers are demanding changes in how the government tracks terrorists online, aiming to bring the methods in line with those for catching child predators in the wake of the Paris and San Bernardino attacks.

A Senate bill introduced this month by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C. — which uses anti-child pornography laws as a model — would require technology companies to report terrorist activity to law enforcement.

“We’re in a new age where terrorist groups like ISIL are using social media to reinvent how they recruit and plot attacks,” Feinstein said in a statement. “That information can be the key to identifying and stopping terrorist recruitment or a terrorist attack, but we need help from technology companies.”

    I read once where one of the leaders of ISSI said women were for bearing sons and young boys were for pleasure. That’s when i stopped believing these messed up Muslim people represented anything close to a religion.

      Fourteen hundred years ago, women were property like any other animal. Most other ‘religions’ and societies have evolved. Islam has not. Some have softer views, but it’s still a 2 tier system.

    It’s a back door to your freedom of speech. They will take this and use it against the citizens of the US.. Don’t fool yourself. It always more than they yell you. This will be bad.

    NSA is not enough?

      It’s only the beginning. TVs that record conversations, such as your Samsung Smart TV, read their privacy warning. Smart electric meter tracks when you’re home, where you are and what you’re doing by tracking lights on/off, refrigerator door open/closed, etc.

    REALLY.. and how are these companies supposed to do that. Seems like just another way to take down a tech company that is in the way of oligarchs that support the likes of Biden and Co.

      Apple was fighting the government demand for ‘back door’ access to social media, etc.

    For a moment thought it was a good idea but then realized Feinstein proposed it. It has to be to label and harass the opposition to the dem minions and BO NOT the real terrorist.

      Good laws are soon corrupted !
      Good laws no longer “evolve”, to reflect changes in how criminals skirt them.
      Good laws de-volve or mutate to serve the corrupt bastards on “crap-of-it-ALL hill”.
      Consider the “mental health” clause that will be “buried” in any new gun legislation (or royal decrees):
      go ahead – argue with your wife or partner
      go ahead – injure someone defending your person, self-defense
      go ahead – give your kid a little “swat”, in public.
      Dems will put you on the “unfit, mentally”, or the “looney list”- unfit to posess a firearm!!!

        Exactly and then there is the will as BO has exhibited to selectively enforce the laws as well. Isn’t this fun? NOT!

      • Liberty’s Advocate

        What ELSE might they want to track? Conversations on firearms forums? Discussions of hunting? Traffic to survivalist forums? NRA members? People who dwell on Constitutional protections against tyranny? How about people who use the word “tyranny” in a sentence?

        They already think those politically incorrect individuals who dare to think OUTSIDE the leftist playbook are either suspect or full- blown right-wing wackos. I can see them developing lists of MANY categories for their jack-booted door knockers to investigate.

          Veterans , especially !
          The “jacked-up” numbers regarding ptsd, should be a “bell-weather” warning.
          They will do ANY thing, these socialist-elite., little chicken-shit bastard morons (living in their nice safe neighborhoods w/adequate security & Police protection) can do to “thin out the herd” of “weaker (financially)” deficient animals!
          Leave the “culled”, unable to defend themselves against street rats, murderers, racist trash, and the “dumb-as-craps” New gun laws , AND their “re-distribution of wealth” taxes.
