Can something you ask Siri be used as evidence in court against you?

If you’re like us, you probably can’t get Siri to accurately tell you the weather – let alone how/where to hide a dead body. But a screenshot found on the phone of a Florida man on trial for murder shows Siri can answer that question.

Pedro Bravo was charged with murder on September 28, 2012 in connection with the death of his friend Christian Aguilar. Aguilar’s body was found in a shallow grave in a Levy County, Florida forest. He was strangled to death.

According to reports, police confirmed a screenshot found on Bravo’s phone from September 20, 2012 showed Siri had been asked, “I need to hide my roommate.” Siri apparently responded: “What kind of place are you looking for? Swamps. Reservoirs. Metal foundries. Dumps.” During a recent court appearance, Gainesville Police Department Detective Matt Goeckel also said Bravo’s phone flashlight was activated nine times and used for over 48 minutes on that date as well.

Many news outlets picked up this sensational story on Wednesday, and, as it turns out, most of the initial reports were wrong. Bravo and Aguilar were friends – not roommates, as was heavily reported. Furthermore, police clarified Goeckel did not testify Bravo asked Siri where to hide the body. Instead, a photo of such a request was found on his phone.

In a new report, the Miami CBS affiliate WBFS-TV explains how the confusion may have originated. While there was a screenshot on Bravo’s phone of a Siri inquiry, the inquiry did not originate from his phone:

On Tuesday, prosecutors showed a screen grab of Bravo’s iPhone which read “I need to hide my roommate.”

Bravo’s attorney pointed out the screen grab was among hundreds of pictures that were on Bravo’s phone and that the search may not have been initiated by his client.

“This is not evidence that he ever did an inquiry, looking for some information online for needing to hide his roommate,” Bravo’s attorney asked Gainesville police department Det. Matthew Goeckel who had taken the stand.

“Correct,” replied Goeckel.

On radio this morning, Glenn, Pat, and Stu did not have the most up-to-date information when they discussed the story, but the conversation is interesting and pertinent nonetheless. When you consider the power of technology in this day and age, it is incredible to think what kind of evidence could be collected from devices like smart phones and tablets in the future.

“What's incredible to me is how people are shocked by this,” Glenn said. “Of course this is what's happening. Of course they have all of these things.”

When you consider the police were able find the screenshot of the Siri query, track when Bravo’s flashlight was turned on and off, and where/when his phone was active one can only imagine how dangerous such information could be if used for nefarious purposes.

“In this particular case, [it was used] in a good way,” Glenn concluded. “[But] remember, the government is starting to build the case that Tea Partiers are extremists. They're already saying that's the most dangerous thing out there – these constitutionalists and these Tea Party people… So we know who the bad guys are going to be in the future. It's us.”

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
