The National Security Agency is collecting millions of phone records from verizon customers, one of the nations largest wireless service providers. This came about in April under a top seceret court order from the FBI. This order requires Verizon to report all calls to the NSA on a daily basis. The information released contains both parties phone numbers, location, time of call and the duration. The government can also acess old emails, facebook messages, twitter DMs and any other kind of electronic communication if the messages are 6 months old and unopened. Many law makers, government agencies and even President Obama support these actions. They call it protecting America but Americans believe its a violation of constitutional rights.

Imagine being abducted. Then imagine, while being held captive two other women joining you in captivity. This was the realtiy for three women. 10 years ago, these women were kidnapped off of a block in Cleveland, Ohio by a bus driver.
The driver, Ariel Castro, 52, was taken into custody Monday along with his 2 brothers. Castro kept the women hidden in a basement for 10 years, according to police. At least one of the women gave birth to a daughter, now 6, while in captivity.
Charles Ramsey, a neighbor who rescued Amanda Berry, 27, Gina DeJesus, 23, and Michelle Knight, 32, said he was at McDonald’s when he heard a woman screaming hysterically inside a nearby house.
“This girl is kicking the door and screaming,” he told local news reporters
Ramsey said the woman screamed, “Help me get out! I’m Amanda Berry… I’ve been missing for 10 years!” Ramsey said he believed the woman was involved in a domestic violence dispute.
Berry was snatched at age 16 in 2003, as she left her job at McDonald’s. DeJesus was 14 when she was taken while walking home from school in 2004. Knight was kidnapped in 2002.
Ramsey and another man broke down the door so Berry could escape. “We had to kick open the bottom,” Ramsey told WEWS-TV. “Lucky on that door it was aluminum. It was cheap. She climbed out with her daughter.”
“I knew something was wrong when a little pretty white girl ran into a black man’s arms,” Ramsey told the station. “Either she homeless or she’s got problems. That’s the only reason she’d run to a black man!”
Ramsey said he gave Berry his cell phone to call 911. He said her name didn’t register because he thought she was dead.
Berry told the 911 kidnapper who she was and that she had been kidnapped 10 years ago. She begged the dispatcher to send the police.
When the dispatcher asked Berry what her captor was wearing, she replied Castro wasn’t home. “I need them now before he gets back,” she pleaded.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported Castro was arrested at the nearby McDonald’s restaurant.
Ironically, Castro’s son, also named Ariel who now goes by “Anthony”, wrote an article about Gina DeJesus’ disappearance for the Cleveland Plain Press back in 2004.
The three women were transported to a local hospital where they were reunited with their families.
Ramsey said he saw Castro in the neighborhood every day. “You got some big testicles to pull this off, bro,” said Ramsey of Castro. “I barbecued with this dude. We ate ribs,” said Ramsey.
A video of Ramsey’s interview has already gone viral online. Ramsey may be eligible for a $25,000 reward offered for the whereabouts of the three missing women.
Authorities believed they had a break in the case last Summer when they received a tip from an inmate who said Berry’s body could be found buried in a vacant lot.
Police used backhoes to dig up the lot but no body was found. The inmate, Robert Wolford, was given an additional 4 years in prison for making a false report and obstruction of justice.
Berry’s sister, Beth Serrano, (pictured above left with Amanda and her daughter in the hospital) was relieved after the search was called off for Berry’s body. She said it meant that her sister was still alive. Serrano wrote a letter to the Cleveland police and the FBI thanking them for continuing their efforts to find Berry.
“It’s been nine long years,” she wrote. “I’m just wishing someone would say something and bring my sister home.”
A psychic who appeared as a guest on the Montel Williams Show told Berry’s mother that her daughter was dead.
Michelle Knight’s mother thinks her daughter’s disappearance didn’t receive as much news coverage as Berry because Michelle was considered a runaway.
Cheering crowds gathered outside the house and the hospital after the news broke that the women had been found. Cleveland residents were very familiar with the disappearance cases because of the extensive news coverage given to the vigils and rallies held for the women over the years.
“This is our own backyard,” neighbor Charlie Czorba told The Plain Dealer. “These girls were locked up in our own backyard.”
The Ohio case is reminiscent of Jaycee Lee Duggard, the South Lake Tahoe, California woman who was 11-years-old when she was abducted from a school bus stop by pedophile Phillip Craig Garrido, 58, and his wife Nancy Garrido, 54, of Antioch, California. Duggard was held captive for 18 years in a tent in the Garrido’s backyard. She gave birth to 2 daughters while in captivity. Garrido was sentenced to 431 years in prison; his wife received a sentence of 36 years to life.
Court began Monday in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial filed against concert promoter AEG.
The Jackson family arrived at the downtown Los Angeles court house as the late pop star's life and death rose to the spotlight again. Jackson's mother, Katherine, wants a jury to hold concert promoter AEG responsible for her son's death.
The singer's struggle against drug addiction was put on display Monday in the wrongful death case.
Brian Panish, the attorney for Katherine Jackson and Michael's children, told the jury about evidence that AEG officials knew for decades about Jackson's struggles with meds, but instead of helping him, they hired Dr. Conrad Murray. Murray was not a pain management specialist but a cardiologist whose home was in foreclosure, owed child support and allegedly was denied privileges at Houston hospital for patient care issues.
While AEG could have hired someone else, the plaintiffs say that only money-strapped Murray would provide Jackson with the drugs the pop start demanded.
AEG lawyer Marvin Putnam used the defense that Jackon was an addict.
"No one knew about Propofol, not his mother, not his children, not the staff working at his house, certainly not the tour promoters," he said.
Putnam went on to portray the case as one of personal choice, that Jackson was responsible for his own death.
"MJ fooled everybody. He made sure no one, nobody, knew his deepest dark secret," he said.
The trial, which will last for months, is expected to reveal details of Jackson's private life and his medical history including his prescription drug abuse. Information from his medical records have remained sealed until now.
Jackson's past legal troubles are also expected to take center stage.
Tom Mesereau represented Jackson in his 2004-2005 child sex abuse trial. Mesereau says if he is called to the witness stand, he will testify that Jackson was exonerated from all molestation charges and that those charges did not diminish Jackson's reputation.
"They want to try and say his reputation was diminished," said Edwards. "If that's true, why did they enter into a business contract with him? And why did they invest $30 million in him before the concerts even began?"
Katherine Jackson and her three children are suing AEG for billions of dollars, alleging that AEG was negligent when hiring Conrad Murray as Jackson's personal physician.
Katherine Jackson alleges that AEG failed to properly investigate Murray and also put pressure on him to perform.
Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death. Murray had administered drugs to Jackson repeatedly to help him sleep as the singer prepared for the concerts.
AEG contends that it did not hire Murray and could not have foreseen the singer's death. The trial will address issues about Jackson's health and finances, which were not factors in Murray's criminal trial.
Mesereau says he believes the defense has an uphill battle.
"If you look at those emails where they acknowledge they're paying his doctor, they acknowledge that he better perform even if he's not well," said Mesereau. "I think the defense has a real uphill battle. I think that sympathy is going to be with Katherine and Michael's three children."
Other legal analysts say that proving the allegations made by Katherine Jackson may be difficult.
"Dr. Murray was a doctor that Michael Jackson had a prior relationship with and that Michael Jackson was the one that was instrumental in getting Dr. Murray hired by AEG or in essence really paid by AEG," said Edwards.
A jury of six men and six women will listen to several months of testimony before deciding if AEG Live, one of the world's largest entertainment companies, should pay Jackson's mother and his three children billions of dollars for its liability in the pop star's death.
Katherine Jackson and the singer's three children are suing AEG in excess of $50 million each for general damages and $10 million each for special damages, making a possible payout in the billions.
Lawyers for Katherine Jackson argue that if Michael Jackson had lived he could potentially have earned that much.
The first witness is expected to take the stand Tuesday. Jackson's two oldest children, Paris and Prince, may testify. Celebrities, such as Diana Ross, Spike Lee and Quincy Jones, are also listed as potential witnesses. It is unclear who will take the stand first.
Nothing like a ‘messy’ Friday. During the second installment of the Real Housewives of Atlanta’s reunion show, we discussed some unresolved tension between NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks. Long story short, NeNe accused Phaedra of trying to form a relationship with her half sister, in an effort to dig up dirt about her. Phaedra apologized, but denied those were her true intentions. And of course, NeNe refuses to believe her. Fast forward to the present day, and it appears the true tension is between NeNe’s half sister, Kenya Sherman.
