This is an essential bill to protect the privacy of Americans. There has been no real revision of laws governing electronic and internet privacy since the 80s, when we could not even begin to understand the impact that the internet would have on the world, or the importance of email in everyday life. Police cannot take your belongings or enter your home and read your note books without reason or warrant. Email has become a central place for people to communicate with family, friends, and business associates, as well as a place to store sensitive personal information. There is absolutely no reason for this bill not to pass. If there is a real reason for law-enforcement to read someone's email, then there is also no reason they shouldn't have to get a warrant. We must continue to build trust between government and citizens.
