Win for Liberty and the Constitution
In a unanimous opinion the US Supreme Court held the Fourth Amendment still matters and that police cannot snoop through your cell phone without a search warrant.
Lawyers for the government argued that law enforcement and government agencies could develop protocols to protect the rights of citizens, but the court in essence said the bureaucrats cannot be trusted.
Chief Justice Roberts, writing for the court stated, “The Founders did not fight a revolution to gain the right to government agency protocols.”
With the federal and state governments assaulting our liberties at every turn, it is worthy of thanks that the Supreme Court is the last bulwark of liberty and that the court acknowledges why the Founders fought against tyranny.
