"Looks like Chicago PD had a stingray out at the Eric Garner protest last night"
Your tax dollars at work: Spying on people just because they demand that the government's agents stop killing black people. [...] Anonymous has released a video featuring what appear to be Chicago police radio transmissions revealing police wiretapping of organizers' phones at the protests last night the day after Thanksgiving, perhaps using a stingray. The transmissions pointing to real-time wiretapping involve the local DHS-funded spy 'fusion' center.

Chinese cops cuff 1,500 in fake base station spam raid
The street finds its own uses for things, in this case Stinger/IMSI-catcher-type fake mobile-phone base stations:
Fake base stations are becoming a particularly popular modus operandi. Often concealed in a van or car, they are driven through city streets to spread their messages. The professional spammer in question charged 1,000 yuan (£100) to spam thousands of users in a radius of a few hundred metres. The pseudo-base station used could send out around 6,000 messages in just half an hour, the report said. Often such spammers are hired by local businessmen to promote their wares.
