UK cops average a personal metadata request every 2 minutes

Daniel Mott at Pando: "The report, which is based on responses to several Freedom of Information Act requests, claims that 733,237 requests were made between 2012 and 2014. That means roughly every two minutes, a request was made for data pertaining to "the who, where and when" of a text, email, phone call or web search." And this is likely an underestimate — one police district didn't even bother to respond to Big Brother Watch's inquiry."
