Oh, look, what a surprise! Pedophiles are being used to scare us into accepting the loss of liberty

Just to prove the point of my previous post suggesting that government “keeps us in constant fear of terrorists, pedophiles, drug runners, gun runners…” is a report in the NewAmerican. In an article discussing the alleged practice of the Michigan State Police to illegally extract personal data from mobile phones during ‘routine stops’, it mentions Senator Ron Wyden’s draft Geolocational Privacy and Surveillance Act. This act would require the police to obtain search warrants before using GPS geolocation data to track Americans.

Not surprisingly, the Obama Justice Department has argued in court that warrantless tracking should be permitted because Americans have no “reasonable expectation of privacy” in the cell phones they carry or the data stored therein or transmitted wirelessly thereby.

Law enforcement agents testified that requiring a search warrant before tracking criminals “will have a significant slowing effect on the processing of child exploitation leads.”
