Police argue for warrantless cell phone searches before SCOTUS
Whether police have the right to search the contents of a cell phone when arresting its owner was put before the Supreme Court Tuesday. Digital rights and civil liberties advocates contend that such a search is in violation of the Fourth Amendment's protection from unreasonable search and seizure. Several lower courts, however, ruled in favor of police, sparking a debate and thrusting the issue before the high court. Discussing the arguments used and the possible implications with RT's Ameera David is John Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute.
