Justice Dept. wants phone locales without warrant

Justice Dept. wants phone locales without warrant By MARYCLAIRE DALE, Associated Press Writer PHILADELPHIA – "Should the government be allowed to track a person's movements based on cell phone records, without evidence of criminal wrongdoing?

A showdown on the issue unfolded Friday in a federal appeals court in Philadelphia, as the Justice Department battled electronic-privacy groups.

This is about as scary as it gets. Definitely double-plus ungood.

I can understand the need for security and safety but there's such a thing as going to far. Personal privacy is, in this day and age, practically non-existent. But there's still some need for individual freedom from Big Brother. We really need someone watching the watchers.
