How new FBI powers to look through NSA intercepts will exacerbate mass incarceration

There’s a new system in place that will allow the FBI and other federal intelligence agencies to obtain direct access to raw information that the NSA has illegally collected. A recent Privacy SOS blog post explains in more detail:
…FBI agents won’t need to have any “national security” related reason to plug your name, email address, phone number, or other “selector” into the NSA’s gargantuan data trove. They could simply poke around in your private information in the course of totally routine investigations. And if they find something that suggests, say, involvement in illegal drug activity, they could send that information to local or state police. That means information the NSA collects for purposes of so-called “national security” will be used by police to lock up ordinary Americans for routine crimes. And we don’t have to guess who’s going to suffer this unconstitutional indignity the most brutally. It’ll be Black, Brown, poor, immigrant, Muslim, and dissident Americans: the same people who are always targeted by law enforcement for extra “special” attention.
