The way communications work, like cellphones, is that tower side is repeatedly broadcasting in a fairly frequent manner, and a then a cellphone responds to let the tower know it is in the vicinity and wants a time slot. Then the tower can get the cellphone to do whatever it wants. And if the tower is not a real public tower, but instead is a fake government plant, then the tower can not only get it to reveal it's GPS coordinates, but even listen in on conversations and turn on the video. Perfect for bugging suspects without having to actually put anything there.HOW? is the question......The people tasked with enforcing our laws are the same people violating our most important laws....
Beyond the controversial ways stingray technology works, the secrecy and deception law enforcement agencies use to cloak their use of the devices is also troubling. Law enforcement agencies around the country have routinely used the devices without obtaining a warrant from judges. In cases where they did obtain a warrant, they often deceived judges about the nature of the technology they planned to use. Instead of telling judges that they intended to use a stingray or cell site simulator, they have often mischaracterized the technology, describing it as a pen register device instead.
