Really, I didn't know the cable company had it's own police and judicial 
system for prosecution.

Buying and selling any of these devices is legal.  Even using one is legal, if 
you notify your cable company (who will promptly trap all the pay channels 
with bandpass filters).  The only thing illegal about it is using it to 
receive any program you have not paid for.
