We don't wonder, we know. What I wonder (other than why the USA was free and then its people gave it up without a fight. All those guns, all that
bluster, and nothing!), is how it is that the police need probable cause and a search warrant to search my home and computer, but not my phone. What
difference does the password make? If I leave me door unlocked can they just barge in? Pure BS.
The cops couldn't barge into your home and search your phone or anything else without evidence of a crime. However, if you just busted someone, then
all bets are off. That is, the crime has occurred so search away. That is why cops planting evidence is the worst corruption. Yeah LAPD, I'm talking
about you, but planting evidence has been going on for the history of time.
Regarding bad arse Americans with guns fighting the powers that be, it doesn't happen. Name me anyone that has held off the cops to the point where
they went back to the police station with their tails between their legs. Waco? Randy Weaver? Zip, nada. When push comes to shove, the cops just burn
down the house.
Burn the mofo
Note that locking your phone may not stop law enforcement forensics. Iphone security is trivial. Android is just a bit harder. Blackberry, well you
need to waterboard the owner for the password. No idea about windows phone. You need to realize that good forensics means you open the phone up and
clamp directly onto chips or remove them for analysis. This means the device has to be secure even if physically invaded. Unless you are on a
blackberry, I suggest you don't document your crime with your camera.
And I could use an English translation of that text message!
