The U.S. Supreme Court is currently considering a similar bill which would allow police to search a suspect’s cell phone during an arrest, without a warrant.

    I am a Vet from the Afghanistan war it it makes me sick to see our Constitution being destroyed by these clowns we call politicians. To have to come home to no free speech zones, NDAA, and many other constitutional laws they are destroying at a record pace. When we hold you accountable for your actions I do not want to hear nothing. All these politicians need to be locked up for being terrorists of the constitution.
