Politician Promises Surveillance Transparency - Guess what happened

TN - Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland confirmed Monday that the city is using cell phone eavesdropping technology with court approval, but said he couldn't discuss specifics.
Not Strickland.

Strickland said while campaigning last year that he would be transparent about the city's use of the "cell-site simulator" device known as StingRay, which lets law enforcement gather information from any phones that connect to a cellular network. 

But as mayor, he said, he's legally bound to silence by the terms of the city's contract with Florida-based Harris Corporation. more(A Memphis phone call sing-a-long.)
