    Old news but I've heard that there are programs that pick up on key words and flag a Internet post of phone conversation for further review by big brother. Could be just a paranoid rumor but I wouldn't be surprised if it was true.
    Yup; they've been doing that for many years. Can't remember the project code names, but D.C. and London had one and worked together.

    I seem to remember CARNIVORE, but that may have been something else.

    All internet traffic is routed through Langley, Virginia. Home to NSA, CIA, and others.
    And don't forget what made the news not so long ago - the massive building NSA is constructing out west that will supposedly be capable of storing all electronic communication.

    While I agree that there should be limits on free speech with respect to credible threats I have to point out the more sinister tone here which is the fact that they are capable of that level of monitoring. In this particular case there was a threat but it just as easily could have been something not threatening and they would have scanned that email just the same. It isn't the first amendment under attack here, it is the 4th and that is a slippery slope to start down.

    I have always watched what I post on the internet. Personally, I have no problem with Google alerting the police of Perez' threats. Was he serious, or just being a internet tough guy? Who knows? I guess they will find out.

    Nope... There are several major hubs for internet traffic... These hub have routers which scan traffic and send certain things to the NSA... but ALL traffic does not flow through one place -

    The internet is like a roadway with paths and intersection and roundabouts...

    Agreed. This is a public forum. If you don't want to share with anyone with a search engine, then don't post it.

    The threats were not by email, but posted on YouTube. Very open, no expectation of privacy.

    Privacy is not the concern but that Big Brother can pay attention to whatever is said or written on the internet. We have already seen how the IRS is used to attack those who do not toe the Establishment line and we can only expect things to get worse as we travel closer to Winston Smith's nightmare.

    You can say whatever you want. If you communicate a threat, expect harassment or assault charges to follow. If you slam your employer or expose their liabilities have another job lined up. If you stab a family member or friend in the back, expect that trist you had with the 17 year old to go viral. Own your words and you will live a happy life.
