    I would not be surprised that Maryland and Pennsylvania cops have the same power to search your car and iPhone without a warrant.

    One of several bad laws signed by Jerry Brown under the cover of the weekend. This bill will make law enforcement more difficult, while only incidentally protecting "privacy rights." It figures that it came out of SF and the ACLU. Last time I checked, no one ever elected the latter to any position of power.

    Yup, plenty of new laws. Also, marijuana is now considered an agricultural crop by California and you can grow and sell for profit. (as long as you are licensed and pay your taxes)

    So you think cops should have the power to violate privacy willy nilly?

    Thank you. +2,000,000


    This is one subject that conservatives fail to understand. They blindly put their faith in the law enforcement profession percieving it as mostly honest and problem free. That is definitely not the case. You give some of these authority figures a badge and a gun and that just goes to their heads and they act like almighty God. Conservatives have also refused to face the true fact that super tough, punitive policies just do not work.
