Submission + - We must—but can't—untangle law enforcement surveillance & state (medium.com)

Snowmit writes: Eleanor Saitta argues that calls from civil society to reduce the scope of surveillance misunderstand the blurry line between law enforcement and state intelligence. "Enforcement of law requires the state to either know of or suspect a violation of the law has occurred," where state intelligence "has a mission to both find previously unknown threats and to find secret information about the lawful activities of entities the state has a structurally adverse relationship with." Can we separate these functions? Saitta isn't optimistic.
