The Sunday veto means that when police arrest anybody in the Golden State, they may search that person’s mobile phone — which in the digital age likely means the contents of persons’ e-mail, call records, text messages, photos, banking activity, cloud-storage services, and even where the phone has traveled.
Brown’s veto also shores up support with police unions and the Peace Officers Research Association of California, a police union that opposed the legislation and recently donated $38,900 to Brown’s campaign coffers. “Restricting the authority of a peace officer to search an arrestee unduly restricts their ability to apply the law, fight crime, discover evidence valuable to an investigation and protect the citizens of California,” the association said in a message. That support would be key if Brown decides to seek a second term. In the last year alone, at least seven police unions donated more than $12,900 each to Brown. Those unions, including the California Association of Highway Patrolmen and the Sacramento County Deputy Sheriff’s Association, had given Brown more than $160,000 in combined contributions.

First, he tramples the 14th Amendment with the "Dream Act".
Then he tramples the 2nd Amendment with the "No open carry law".
Now, he's trampling the 4th Amendment.
California must be a bunch of sadomasochists, because they love being screwed by this guy. Didn't they recall him once, then voted the bum back in? Morons.

Soloution: go to your nearest thrift store and buy yourself an old cell phone.
When you get pulled over hand the friendly officer your 1980's decoy phone!
The conventional viewpoint says we need a jobs program and we need to cut welfare. Just the opposite! We need more welfare and fewer jobs. Jobs for every American is doomed to failure because of modern automation and production. We ought to recognize it and create an income-maintenance system so every single American has the dignity and the wherewithal for shelter, basic food, and medical care. I’m talking about welfare for all.
–Now, Brown has just been caught on tape (hat tip: Breitbart TV) again, telling a Hispanic crowd this weekend that illegal aliens deserve to get a free college education in California, because we are such a WEALTHY STATE. (That ”little” part about a $19 billion deficit and a $500 billion unfunded pension liability for 3 state unions…..oh THAT.)
