The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is concerned about Michigan police being able to gather geographical and personal data from cellphones during routing traffic stops.
What a shame. Protect and serve? Pshh
Big brother is watching you! And OMG at $544k hahaha
Good thing that I don't ever use or have my phone.
Lol why do you have one then?
No surprise here, welcome to the digital age.
Unless I pull my battery and sim card and say fuck off. The law says search the phone, nothing about the sim card or battery or even the memory card. In most states this would require a warrant. This will not last or stand.
Sorry for the double post, but the "you should not care if you have nothing to hide" has nothing to do with it. This is America and our forefathers fought and died to stop this type of nonsense. My respsonse is this is America and I don't want you to scan my phone and that thing called the bill of rights trumps stupid pigs any day.
Times change... America must change. Not that this is the way to go necessarily, but you sound like a complete conservative.
I hope they go through your phone, see how you like it. Then we will see if you will still be pointing fingers calling people who stand up for our rights a conservative. In fact you are nothing but an ignorant fool.
@downtown - conservative or not, there is a line between what is meant to be personal and public. Just because my phone has no illegal content doesnt mean you can go through my phone and see what's on it.
Dont blame the government, or the cops. blame the idiots who killed people while texting and driving. without them, i dont think anyone would even think of making something like this.
That is not the reason why they got the scanners. There is no law to allow for suspects to be charged if they were found to be talking or texting while driving.
