DOJ vs. 4th Amendment
Top law enforcement officials have asked leading Internet companies to keep histories of the activities of Web users for up to two years to assist in criminal investigations of child pornography and terrorism, the Justice Department said Wednesday.
I don't agree with this one. Forcing these companies to keep these records will create a huge expense. Also and most importantly this may violate the fourth amendment. This is an intrusion into my private affairs. Also the longer these records are kept the more likely that they will be comprisized by un-ethical individuals and or organizations. I understand that we are at war with terriorist but at the same time that doesn't mean I want to live in a police state. I didn't have a problem with the phone records but this is stretching the line a bit to thin and is putting our private lives at risk.
