Old news but ...
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.

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.

I bet you could see the heat signature of that server farm from outer space with a dollar store binocular and both eyes closed!

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 -

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.

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.

Great news on that. Hope they keep up the good work.
