Big Brother is Watching


Someone posted a warning about a possible police sobriety checkpoint on a message board devoted to goings on in Rockland, Massachusetts. A few weeks later, Rockland police Lt. Barry Ashton went on that same message board to say an investigation had revealed that the warning came from a computer in the home of the local school committee chairman. Ashton admits that the warning was not illegal. He also admitted to local media that he did not get a warrant or subpoena to get information on who posted the message.
