Default School used student laptop webcams to spy on them at school and home

According to the filings in Blake J Robbins v Lower Merion School District (PA) et al, the laptops issued to high-school students in the well-heeled Philly suburb have web cams that can be covertly activated by the schools' administrators, who have used this facility to spy on students and even their families. The issue came to light when the Robbin's child was disciplined for "improper behavior in his home" and the Vice Principal used a photo taken by the webcam as evidence. The suit is a class action, brought on behalf of all students issued with these machines.

The kids were not told that there was a web cam enabled on the lap top.

The only reason this was brough to attention (school doing this) was becasue the vice principal was trying to disciple a kid for something he was doing at home.

We all want the technology until it is used against us.

Cameras and mic's in laptop pc's and your phones.
They have all been used before to gather evidence against people.

Text messages that you deleted.
Pictures that loaded when you went to the wrong site.

Big brother knows where you are, where you have been and can dig up enough dirt to put the pope away for life.

And we all think that guy that flew into the IRS was a nut.

Big Brother was watching him do that too, probably in play-by-play.

It is true that as long as you have a battery in your phone the government can turn on the mic. Shit they did something similar to try to nail some higher up mob people a few years back.
