Court Rules Police Can Search Cell Phones Without Warrant...


Police Given Direct Line To Cell Phone Searches

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Think about all the personal information we keep in our cell phones: It’s something to consider after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit ruled it is now legal for police to search cell phones without a warrant.

Former Dallas FBI Agent Danny Defenbaugh said the ruling gives law enforcement a leg up. “I think not only will it help them, but it could be life saving,” said the former Special Agent, who was based in Dallas.

The decision stems from an Indiana case where police arrested a man for dealing drugs. An officer searched the suspect’s cell phone without warrant.

Cell phones first -- and then what?

They're watching twitter, facebook, our emails, and now our phones. What's next? Our cars? Our homes? Our churches? Good bye civil liberties -- hello China's style of governance. Will we have to sneak out of our homes in the middle of the night to gather as groups of believers to worship the one and only God? Will we have to use code words to express our love of Christ? Will we have to hide our Bibles under the floorboards of our homes? Will we have to face persecution for believing in the one who created us? Hopefully we're taken up in the clouds with Jesus before all of this comes to be - but thankful that I am protected by the living God... "Just Stand" Stand for Christ, Stand for the one true God, Stand for the power of the Holy Spirit, Stand for the truth that is God's unfailing word, Just Stand for righteousness, Just Stand for the saving grace of God, Just Stand for the shed blood of Jesus on the cross, Just Stand for that which is right and just...

Will you Stand for the one that died for you?
