I’m confused way this is strange to anyone, at all. It seems like this flows directly from like 80 years of precedent. It was on his person when he got arrested, why would the police need a warrant to search his phone. It’s not like they got records from the company without a warrant.
[quote] the majority likened cell phone inspection to police inspection of a cigarette pack taken from a suspect, which was ruled a legal search in a prior case. A second ruling was cited involving the search of clothing removed from a suspect.
this makes perfect sense. [/quote]
Agreed. I am not surprised. I don’t like it, but not surprised.
The logic is consistent.
This is why we need less dumb laws, and fewer cops to enforce them.
The only way to slow the infringements on our liberties is to defund the police state.
I totally agree , the war on drugs is how these cops turn America into a Police State.The cops can search anyone at any time unless you have the resources to combat city hall[/quote]
On this I will agree as well. They (law enforcement) can also confiscate anything they want under the laws that govern the war on drugs. Someone correct me on this if I’m wrong, but I’ve always understood that all they have to do is say that the item was tied to “drug money” or some other such tie to the drug laws.
This actually happened to a friend of mine who was busted for growing his own weed in his house. Never sold it, or profited from it, just a biker hippie who liked to smoke and never hurt a soul. They kicked in his front door (literally) while he was having dinner with his wife, and they took all kinds of shit from his house that was never returned. Tossed his and his wife’s ass on the floor while they rifled through every crevice in his house. All for home grown plants that have been growing up out of the ground since before any of us were ever around. Bullshit.
