Michigan Police Have Lost their F*cking Minds

Thank goodness for the ACLU. The defenders of the Constitution are calling attention to the Michigan State Police for using a gadget that can download personal data from the cell phones of persons they pull over… even if they haven’t been charged with a crime. Called “extraction devices,” the gizmos are capable of capturing “text messages, photos, video, and even GPS data” reports CNET. Ironically, the company that makes the rights-trampling machine refuses to release any info on it.
