Civil Rights Group Condemns NYPD’s Warrantless Use of Military Grade Cell Phone Surveillance Devices and Demands FCC Action

NEW YORK, NY. - ColorOfChange, the nation’s largest online civil rights organization, is condemning the New York Police Department’s more than 1,000 warrantless uses of the controversial cell phone surveillance device known as Stingrays.
