Austin police frustrated with DWI conviction rates
While DWI arrests continue to rise in Austin, the city's top cop doesn't think enough offenders are convicted of the crime. "Life is about accountability. It's about paying the price for making a poor choice," said Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo. Yolanda Mason agrees. A drunk driver hit her in 2012. According to police dashboard camera video, the driver who hit her was so drunk he couldn't stand up to do the sobriety test. So, the courts considered Rivera's last conviction a misdemeanor. He received two years probation.
NSA's Internet monitoring said to be legal
The first time the bipartisan Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board dissected a National Security Agency surveillance program, it found fundamental flaws, arguing in a January report that the NSA's collection of domestic calling records "lacked a viable legal foundation" and should be shut down. But in its latest study, the five-member board takes the opposite view of a different set of NSA programs revealed last year by former NSA systems administrator Edward Snowden. The new report, which the board was to vote on Wednesday, found that the NSA's collection of Internet data within the United States passes constitutional muster and employs "reasonable" safeguards designed to protect the rights of Americans. The board, whose members were appointed by President Barack Obama, largely endorsed a set of NSA surveillance programs that have provoked worldwide controversy since Snowden disclosed them. http://www.newsradioklbj.com/news/technology/tech-headlines/nsas-interne...
