People Object To Verizon Info Grab

People Object To Verizon Info Grab

Posted: Updated:
Mobile, AL -

You'll see people talking walking and texting and no one's happy about Verizon being forced to turn over records on customers. 

"We are the government, they wouldn't be squat it not for our taxes that they keep squandering on stupid nonsensical things they're squandering them on," says Rebecca from Gulf Shores.  Many people see the phone grab as a huge breech of privacy.  Just stepping outside you lose some privacy.  Around downtown mobile the police department runs a network of nearly two dozen cameras.  You can find one just about every two blocks.  At the Battle House Hotel you'll find five security cameras. Using your credit card you give up data on what you buy--it's hard to keep anything private.

"The government needs to strike a balance between what is good for the country security wise and what is good for us as citizens as we talk on the phone," says Israel Lewis from Mobile.  The Verizon controversy has people talking about how to protect their rights.

"People need to know what's in the constitution, the bill of rights, people need to be educated, speaking up like we're doing right now," says Angela Styczenski from Gulfport.  Customers of other carriers say they wonder if the government is pulling their records too.
