Investigating riots

“Judge Grants Access To Protesters’ Data,” The Wall Street Journal, August 25, 2017 A3 (when I evacuated Houston).  Prosecutors get some access to data on who used a certain website to plan protests on Inauguration Day, which protests led to riots and vandalism.

Freedom of speech is a big control on information governance.  But as Justice Holmes said, you can’t falsely shout “Fire” in a crowded theater with impunity. (The word “falsely” is often dropped.)  So some access seems okay, does it not?

The other side of information security.
