Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that the Supreme Court has ruled that police now need a warrant to search an arrested person's cell phone. Discuss here if you think this was the right decision, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks!
Justin

Of course it was the right decision. Cops have no business going through your stuff anymore than anyone else does.

I also believe it was the right decision. We should not allow our freedom to be taken away rule by rule. The thing that doesn't make sense, is why have a law that can't be enforced. Cops don't stop people for not wearing seat belts, but if the pull you over for another reason, they can bust you for the seat belt too. If texting while driving is illegal, but the cops can't tell if you're texting or pull you over if they suspect your guilty, why have the law. Now that people know it can't be enforced, what will stop them from doing it. If someone gets in an accident because they were texting, and someone is injured or killed, they can enforce it, but if you never get in an accident, what's to stop anyone from continuing this insane practice. It would be impossible for the cops to pull over everyone who is texting or talking on the phone while driving. You would need thousands of cops on patrol and unlimited restrictions on what they can do. You can only rely on people using good sense and not using their phones in a driving situation. You will have a better chance of hitting the lottery or being struck by lightning. Common sense has flown out the window and continues to soar into the ethers.
