I’m sorry authoritarians but we do still have a 4th Amendment in this country.
Yet more freedom and privacy slips away.
Good. Let’s hope the Senate doesn’t wuss out.
Again, as we have said before, we DO have a 4th Amendment. We are sorry if it gets in the way of the various alphabet agencies which would like to troll through our information, (not really) but the Amendment was pretty much created to keep the government from trolling through our information. Under the Constitution I don’t see how warrantless email searches are legal.
Government agencies always want MORE power. They are in a constant quest for more turf,
This is the head of the FBI saying this. On 60 Minutes.It’s about as close to a flat out warning as he could give the American people.
Is that right?
Soon nothing at all will be private. The government will have access to everything it could possibly want to know about you. (It can gather it fairly easily already.) Powerful new Internet tracking tools and prediction algorithms are being deployed right now.
“Do we close down cities because there were 10 people murdered over the weekend in Chicago?”
What happened in the wake of the bombings last week is very important for the future of this country. Is it OK now to lock down an entire city while law enforcement runs through the streets looking for a perpetrator? America, are you OK with that? Is that the society we want to live in?
So who cares about the 4th Amendment to the Constitution. I mean, how passe can you get? Privacy and respect for the dignity of the average American citizen? Please.
