Wanna tap 3 million phone calls? All it takes is one measly warrant

Wrong numbers

THey got that figure from the number of convictions divided by the number of warrants: 1,240 / (1,551 + 1,617) = 39%

Of course there's no evidence that 39% of warrants resulted in a conviction, only that the number of convictions is 39% of the number of warrants, which doesn't mean much.
