Ummmm, really? Somebody's home is not private
property? If you don't expect your backyard to be private, maybe you should post your address
and let everybody know your barbeque is open to the public.
Email account vs a backyard..(aka..plain view) Do I or anyone really have to explain why there is NOOOOO comparison here?
OMG, are you serious? So now CYBERSPACE is more sacred than our actual homes?? Whatever you say, I'm sure you wouldn't feel that way if somebody was
hanging out in your backyard one morning when you woke up. And since when are backyards in "plain view"?? Most of the ones in my neighborhood are
fenced. I've watched many an episode of COPS where they chase some car thief over a fence and happen upon some plants and actually STOP chasing the
thief and bust the homeowner. Sure it's stupid to grow plants in your backyard, and it's just as stupid to use a yahoo acount for GOVERNMENT
BUSINESS to hide communications from public view. If she did that, she is a criminal. Just because YOU support her doesn't make her any less guilty,
sorry. If ANON found some kiddie porn on a DEMOCRATS computer, I'm VERY sure you wouldn't be crying foul. You can't pick and choose which invasions
of privacy you support.
What you should be saying is: If its ok for this retarted ANON group to do do this then COPS should be allowed to pick the locks on your front door
while you sleep or aren't home, come in and search for anything illegal. If they find it...arrest you...then say..."yes judge we know what and how
we did it was not "sound" but this scumbag still had child porn and coc aine....see where your logic leads us?
No, they don't pick the lock, they kick the door in and throw flash grenades, but you know that.
Just because cops think they have a lead, and they get permission from a judge first, doesn't make it different than what you typed above. It's
still an invasion, if you're blatantly selling drugs or child porn you should expect to draw attention, some of it wanted, some of it unwanted. Same
goes for running for PUBLIC office.
