An important decision regarding your privacy

Seems that the Supreme Court actually made a decent, well thought out decision regarding the privacy of the contents of your cell phone.

It now is required that police get a warrant when wanting to search the contents of your cell phone. No matter WHY they arrest you, they have to get a warrant for the information in your cell phone's memory... Contacts, calls, texts, etc re confidential information until and unless the po=po find a judge and convince him/her that the in your phone is somehow relevant to a case they are making against you....

This is BIG.

Yes it is a rare win, but if you look at how the SC has ruled on other Constitutional issues the last several years, I'm not sure it will help when you consider all the other unconstitutional tactics that can be "legally" used against you.
